South Airport Phase 4

Environmental Services is constructing two sewer pump stations at the north end of NE 42nd Avenue and on the east side of NE 47th Avenue (see map below). This project will connect about 100 homes and businesses that have been using septic systems to the public sanitary sewer. This project will help protect public health, property and the environment.

South Airport Phase 4 Map

Current Schedule

The city’s contractor is installing the pipe connections to the pump stations at NE 47th Avenue. This work will require lane closures on NE 47th Avenue near the pump station.The pipe installation and repaving work will require closures of the east side and then the west side of NE 47th Avenue. When the road is reduced to one lane, flaggers will direct two-way traffic through the work area. Please be aware and follow flagger directions to ensure a safe environment for all in this area. This phase of the project will take several weeks to complete, followed by paving. The overall completion and startup of the pump stations should take place in January 2015.

  • Work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The contractor may choose to work during the same hours on Saturday if necessary.
