Environmental Services has completed the design of the SE Hawthorne-Salmon Area Project which will include installing stormwater infiltration facilities, planting street trees, and constructing pipe, extending the service life of sewers and advancing watershed health goals. This project is located in the SE Hawthorne Boulevard and Salmon area from SE 41st to 50th and SE Yamhill and Harrison streets. The work will reduce the risk of sewer backups into basements and streets. This project is part of the Tabor to the River Program.
Future construction on Hawthorne Boulevard will temporarily remove parking.
Sewer construction on Hawthorne Boulevard will be conducted in phases and will require temporary parking restrictions on both side of Hawthorne within and near the active work zone. The mainline pipe construction zone will be in the middle of Hawthorne and the city's contractor will keep traffic moving in both directions on either side of the construction area. When the contractor installs sewer laterals to connect businesses to the mainline sewer, traffic will move through the construction zone on the opposite side of the street. During construction at intersections, traffic will not be able to turn off of Hawthorne in some directions and vehicles may occasionally be restricted to a single lane with flaggers directing traffic.
