Environmental Services is designing a project to repair or replace approximately 5,600 feet, or about one mile, of public sewer pipes in the Mt. Scott, Arleta, and Woodstock neighborhoods. Most of the sewer pipes are over 85 years old and are deteriorating due to age. This project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
For a map of locations where sewer work will occur, click here. Sewer construction will take place only on the streets indicated with bold highlights on the map. There may be traffic control, construction signage, equipment storage or increased traffic volume and parking on nearby streets.
Design will continue into 2017. Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2017 and will take about one year to complete.
The city will update neighbors at regular meetings of the Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock neighborhood associations. Click here for the next information session.
