TRAFFIC ADVISORY: 

Street improvements on SE Grand Avenue from SE Salmon Street to E Burnside, 

July 25-August 13

(July 20, 2016) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on SE Grand Avenue from SE Salmon Street to E Burnside on Monday, July 25, through Thursday, August 11, 7 a.m. through 4 p.m. each work day.

The lane closures will allow crews to grind and pave over 2 lane miles of pavement.

Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project hours. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.

The traveling public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.

 

 

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is the steward of the City’s transportation system, and a community partner in shaping a livable city. We plan, build, manage and maintain an effective and safe transportation system that provides access and mobility. www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation

Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock Sewer Repair Project: Design continues

Environmental Services is designing a project to repair or replace approximately 5,600 feet, or about one mile, of public sewer pipes in the Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock neighborhoods

Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock Sewer Repair Project: Design continues

Environmental Services is designing a project to repair or replace approximately 5,600 feet, or about one mile, of public sewer pipes in the Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock neighborhoods. Most of the sewer pipes are more than 85 years old and are deteriorating due to age. The project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

A project map is available on the webpage at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/mtscott.

SCHEDULE

Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017 and take about a year to complete. We will continue to provide more specific information as the project evolves. 

DEVELOPMENTS OF NOTE

  • Since our last update, we have decided which sewer pipes in your neighborhood will be repaired. See map at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/mtscott.
  • We have identified which construction methods will be used at each location; these are noted on the map.
  • We have determined two locations where we anticipate night work will be needed; these are also noted on the map.
  • The July 2016 newsletter with more details is available on the project webpage.
  • We will continue to update the neighborhoods at meetings of the Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock neighborhood associations. See the webpage and the July 2016 newsletter for these opportunities to learn more about the project, ask questions and give us your input.

  • Work will begin today and is expected to take a couple days to complete. 

 

Mainline sewer repairs using the cured in place pipe lining (CIPP) method are expected to be complete this week

  • After all mainline CIPP repairs are complete, residents should expect a period of inactivity while quality control inspections are performed.
  • Once it’s determined that the repairs meet city standards, crews will return to repair public sewer lateral pipes that connect homes and businesses to the mainline.

 

Crews will begin open trench construction on N Kerby Avenue between Buffalo and Morgan streets tomorrow.

  • Go www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/opentrench to learn more about open trench construction and to view photos.

CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE

Construction hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Below is the estimated construction schedule for the next two weeks. Please be aware that this schedule is subject to change due to a variety of factors, including conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials.

The rest of this week

  • N Kerby Avenue (Dekum      to Rosa Parks) – additional mainline sewer repair
  • N Kerby Avenue      (Buffalo to Morgan) – manhole, mainline, and lateral sewer pipe      construction

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

  • Construction hours will be 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The contractor may also schedule work during the same hours on Saturdays.
  • Construction creates noise, vibration and dust and disrupts normal neighborhood activity.
  • The contractor will maintain local access, but construction may impact normal use of your driveway or entrance to your business.
  • You should expect traffic delays in and near the work area. Please observe traffic control signs and follow the directions of flaggers.
  • On‐street parking will be restricted in and near the work zones to create a safe work environment and to stage equipment and materials.
  • Some equipment and materials may be stored on your street or nearby streets overnight.
  • There may be periods of inactivity between construction phases due to a variety of factors including weather, subcontractor schedules, and availability of materials.
  • A city inspector will be on-site during work hours and may be able to assist you with an immediate need during construction.
  • Sewer, water, and other utilities will remain in service during construction.
