Beginning tomorrow (Tuesday, June 17), sewer construction will close NE 148th Avenue between NE Sandy Boulevard and NE Mason Street during daytime construction hours. Both northbound and southbound traffic will detour around the work area from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Construction will take about 14 days to complete. Lanes will re-open to traffic after construction hours.
The construction is part of a project to construct a facility to divert street runoff to a facility that remove pollutants from stormwater before it flows into the Columbia Slough. The facility is also designed to contain hazardous materials spills before they can enter the slough.
