Hollywood-Grant Park Construction Update: February 12, 2016
Construction is underway on Environmental Services’ Hollywood-Grant Park Sewer and Stormwater Project http://www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/64826.
The maps posted at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/article/552546 show the anticipated construction schedule for the next three weeks and through March. Work in each area will take a few weeks to complete and there may be periods of inactivity between construction phases. The contractor will apply temporary pavement after completing pipe installation in all work areas. Final trench paving and restoration will take place at a later time as weather allows. Areas on the map, marked in gray, are currently not on the schedule or are not completed. The link to the construction schedule maps will also be regularly updated with photos of the construction.
The construction schedules are subject to change due to underground conditions, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules and/or availability of materials.
DEVELOPMENTS OF NOTE
- Stormwater planter construction is nearing completion. Please be aware that the planting will take place over the next few months during the planting season.
- Each location will go through phases of construction saw-cutting, pipe installation, lateral connection from each building to the curb, temporary paving, final trench paving and restoration. There will be periods of inactivity during these phases.
- Our contractor is continuing with open trench excavation, pipe bursting and spot repairs throughout the project area. Go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/methods for information on these and other construction methods. The project construction method map is at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/article/486561.
- Our contractor has tentatively scheduled final trench paving and restoration in some locations within the project area. See www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/article/552546 for locations. Restoration includes any curb repairs or median seeding damaged by construction and overall cleanup of each location. Please remember all paving and restoration is weather dependent and all paving contractor schedules can change on short notice.
