Clinton Green Street and Sewer Project

The Clinton Green Street and Sewer Project is replacing 3,800 feet of sewer pipe installed over 100 years ago, constructing 24 green street planters and adding two blocks of pervious paving.

The new greens streets and pervious pavement will keep 1.8 million gallons of stormwater out of the sewer system annually. These improvements will protect public health, property and the environment, and reduce the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses.


Developments of Note

Preparation for pervious paving on SE Ivon Street between 20th and 21st avenues and between 21st and 22nd avenues is in progress

  • Crews have excavated the roadway and are now preparing the underlying rock base layer before applying pervious asphalt. 
  • Important: The Portland Water Bureau will be lowering the public water lines within the work zone below the level of, what will be, the pervious asphalt layer. This work is tentatively scheduled for next Monday, April, 27th.  Residents will be notified of any disruption to their water service.
  • Preparation is expected to take up to two more weeks. Weather permitting, pervious paving will then be applied and allowed to cure (or harden) for up to four days.
  • Traffic will continue to be delayed periodically on SE 20th and SE 22nd between SE Division and Clinton streets.

Next week, manhole work and spot paving will periodically delay traffic on SE Clinton Street at 30th Avenue for about three days

  • Flaggers will direct bicycles and motorists past the work zone.
  • This work is part of a “punch” list of remaining items that need attention before the project is complete.
  • Punch list items typically include cleaning specific areas, completing remaining restoration of sidewalks, curbs, and planting strips, and any additional spot paving. You may see crews working on punch list items throughout the project area for several weeks.
