CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE

There may be periods of inactivity between construction phases.

Saturday, October 11

  • NE 24th Avenue (at Fremont) – manhole construction

Week of October 13

  • NE 24th Avenue (Fremont – Ridgewood) – open trench construction to place main public sewer pipe, manhole construction, and installation of lateral branches

Week of October 20

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

  • Construction creates noise, vibration and dust and disrupts normal neighborhood activity.
  • Typical work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the contractor may schedule work during the same hours on Saturdays.
  • Please stay clear of all construction activities and keep children, pets and vehicles out of construction areas.
  • On-street parking in or near the work area may be limited. Please observe no parking signs.
  • Equipment and materials may be stored on nearby streets overnight.
  • Traffic control signs are in place. The contractor maintains local access, but you should expect delays. In some cases, construction activities may impact normal use of your driveway.
  • A city inspector is on-site during work hours and may be able to assist you with construction concerns. Inspectors typically wear a safety vest with “City of Portland” on the back and hard hat.
