Eastmoreland-Woodstock Sewer Repair

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: August 14, 2014

Construction continues on a project in your neighborhood to repair or replace about 40,000 feet of severely 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

Crews will also be completing manhole restorations and other minor items on SE Malden, SE Lambert, SE 44th, SE Lexington, SE Nehalem and SE Crystal Springs Boulevard over the next several weeks.  No excavation will be happening.

Construction Schedule

Below is the estimated construction schedule for the next few weeks. Please be aware that this schedule is subject to change due to a variety of factors, including underground conditions, weather, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials. As the contractor completes construction on each street, work crews apply a temporary asphalt patch. They will return at a later date to apply permanent paving.

Week of August 18

  • SE 28th Avenue (between SE Bybee Boulevard and SE Tolman) – Pipe burst, connect or install manholes, and install new branches to connect houses to main public sewer pipe.
  • SE Martins Street (at SE 32nd) – Pipe burst, connect or install manholes, and install new branches to connect houses to main public sewer pipe.
  • SE 34th Avenue (between SE Henry and SE Claybourne) – Start temporary sewer branch connections and set up for pipe burst.

Week of August 25

  • SE 34th Avenue (between SE Henry and SE Claybourne) – Pipe burst, connect or install manholes, and install new branches to connect houses to main public sewer pipe.
  • SE 32nd Avenue (between SE Carlton and Tolman) – Start open trench (not on Fridays).
  • SE Henry Street (between SE 34th and SE 36th) - – Start temporary sewer branch connections and set up for pipe burst.

Construction should be completed by summer 2015. The project area is bordered by SE Woodstock Boulevard on the north, SE 28th Avenue on the west, SE 45th Avenue on the east and SE Crystal Springs Boulevard on the south.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

  • Typical work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the contractor may schedule work during the same hours on Saturdays.
  • Construction will create noise, vibration and dust and will disrupt normal neighborhood activity.
  • Traffic control signs will be set up. The contractor will maintain local access, but you should expect delays.
  • On-street parking in or near the work area will be prohibited during construction hours. Please plan to move your vehicle each day by 7:00 a.m.
  • Equipment and materials may be stored on nearby streets overnight.
  • There may be periods of inactivity between construction phases.
  • A city inspector will be on-site during work hours and may be able to assist you with construction concerns. Inspectors typically wear a safety vest with City of Portland on the back and a hard hat.
  • Please stay clear of all construction activities. Please keep your children from harm and instruct them to stay clear of all construction activities. We also appreciate your keeping pets and vehicles out of the construction areas.
