Lower Russell Levee Setback

As a part of King County’s Lower Russell Levee Setback project in Washington, Anchor QEA’s team was hired to provide construction management services, including field inspection; cost, quality, and document control; materials testing; and archaeological monitoring.

The 1.4-mile-long levee and park project replaces an old levee and improves flood protection for the community while adding habitat for fish and wildlife. The first phase of the project saw the construction of a 2,400-linear-foot cast-in-place flood wall with a detailed form liner finish. The second phase involves the construction of a new levee on a setback alignment, backwater and habitat features, and a new park. The project provides improved flood protection as well as riparian and aquatic habitat along the Green River. The project also includes new utility installation, building demolition, impacted soils remediation, and engineered logjam construction.

Through drone photography and mapping, Anchor QEA and King County can share project updates with remote stakeholders, better visualize the project components and construction approaches, and communicate progress to everyone involved in the project. This work has been closely coordinated with the contractor to improve communication and teaming while minimizing the impact on the overall project schedule.
