Kenton Sewer Repair Project Construction Update: March 23, 2015
DEVELOPMENTS OF NOTE
This week, crews will begin preparing for pipe bursting on N McClellan Street. Work on McClellan and N Denver Avenue will take approximately three to four weeks. Individual notices will be given to residents and businesses affected by the work. During this period, McClellan (west of Denver) will be closed to through traffic. Traffic on Denver will be maintained in both directions but drivers should be aware of construction crews and traffic controls in place. To learn more about pipe bursting, please visit the link under FOR MORE INFORMATION explaining different types of construction methods employed by this project.
Below is the anticipated construction schedule for the next two weeks. This schedule is subject to change due to a variety of factors, including underground conditions, weather, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials. As the contractor completes construction on each street, work crews apply a temporary asphalt patch. They will return at a later date to apply permanent paving.
As weather and availability of work crews and equipment allow, crews are beginning to do final paving on streets where sewer repairs are complete. Due to these circumstances, paving work may occur that is not part of this notice and some scheduled final paving may be delayed.
Week of March 23th:
Week of March 30th:
Timing tentative – Final paving on N Schofield (between Brandon and Delaware) – please be aware of no parking signs.
The city's contractor is using a combination of open trench construction, cured-in-place-pipe lining, and pipe bursting. Go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/64780 for more information about sewer construction methods.
The Portland Noise Control Office granted Environmental Services a noise variance for nighttime construction at several locations in this project (see map below).
A city inspector will be on-site during this night work. To report concerns during night work, please call the on-site hotline at 503-823-8458. You may also call the Portland Noise Control Office at 503-823-7350 or email email@example.com.
The contractor will use cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP) to repair several sewers. Work crews may install lining at night at some locations because of the size of the pipe. Work at each location should take no more than a few days. People who live and work near a CIPP repair project can sometimes smell a chemical odor during pipe-lining. The odor is from the chemical styrene, which is in the resin liner installed inside the pipe. The odor dissipates quickly once the installation process is complete. The amount of airborne styrene the repair process produces is not a human health risk. Go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/article/467513 for more information about CIPP construction.
The map below shows the location of pipes we will repair or replace. There may be temporary traffic controls, construction signage or increased traffic volume and parking on nearby streets.
