1120 SW 5th Avenue, Room 1000, Portland, OR 97204
Construction is winding down on this project to repair or replace about 40,000 feet of deteriorated sewer pipes that are more than 60 years old. The work will make the sewer system work more effectively and protect water quality, public health and the environment.
Developments of Note
Starting next week, crews will be paving SE 32nd Avenue (from Martins to Tolman), Tolman (from 32nd to 34th – not the intersection of Reed College Place), and SE Reedway (from 41st to 42nd). The street will be closed to all road traffic during construction hours for about a week. In addition to restricting on-street parking, there will be no access to driveways within the work zone during construction hours. Residents living next to active construction should park outside of the work zone from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. TriMet has been notified and will make the appropriate bus detours and post information on their website (http://trimet.org/alerts).
NOTE: Paving is weather dependent. If there is rain, the paving will be delayed.
For the next several weeks, the contractor will work on punch list items, including installing and repairing manholes and storm drains, repairing or adjusting pipes if needed, installing permanent pavement, repairing curbs, and cleaning up and demobilizing.
