Sewer construction that started today is delaying traffic on SE Caruthers Street and 20th Avenue. Construction will last for several days at that intersection.
Motorists and bicyclists should expect delays in the construction zone during work hours, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Environmental Services is constructing a sewer manhole that requires flaggers to direct traffic around the work zone during construction hours. The work is part of the Clinton Green Street and Sewer Project to replace about 3,800 feet of sewer pipes in poor condition and build 24 green street stormwater planters.
