SE Hawthorne-Salmon Area Green Street and Sewer Project

The Hawthorne-Salmon Area Green Street and Sewer Project includes installing 23 green street planters, planting 100 street trees, and repairing or replacing over 10,000 feet of public sewer pipe. These improvements will extend the service life of our sewer system and protect public health, property and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses. This project is part of the Tabor to the River Program.

Developments of Note

Sewer construction on SE 49th Avenue between SE Yamhill and SE Belmont streets may require a detour for up to three days

  • Due to the location of the mainline sewer pipe in this location, maintaining a safe travel lane past the work zone may not be possible. 
  • If the detour is needed, additional details will be made available.

Going forward, crews will be scheduled on Saturdays to complete some phases of green street construction in multiple locations 

  • Saturday, September 17, crews will be working on green planters located on SE 47th Avenue near SE Taylor Street and on SE 50th Avenue just north of SE Hawthorne Boulevard.
  • Saturday, September 24, crews will be working on a green street planter located on SE Yamhill Street near SE 47th Avenue.
