Division Streetscape Project Update: January 9, 2014
Environmental Services and the Bureau of Transportation are working together to improve a deficient transportation corridor, repair and replace older sewers, add green infrastructure to manage stormwater and make sewers more efficient, and improve watershed health.
WHAT WE’VE HEARD FROM YOU
We have heard numerous concerns about trench patching on areas of SE Division. Now that the holidays are over, our contractor can begin maintenance on many of those temporary trench patches. Trench maintenance between SE 30th and 32nd may be delayed until February due to upcoming private contractor work in the roadway on SE Division. Crews will work to improve all locations as soon as possible. The final grind and paving of Division will be completed this summer.
Below is the estimated Division Streetscape construction schedule for the next two weeks.
Construction will move from one site to another as work on each segment is completed. 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.

- Install manhole at SE 34th Avenue
- Repair lateral sewer connection near SE 31st Avenue and Division

Tabor to the River Program
This project is part of the Tabor to the River Program, which combines innovative stormwater management techniques with sewer repairs and improvements to stop basement flooding, manage stormwater more naturally, and to restore watershed health. The program area extends from Mt. Tabor to the Willamette River between SE Hawthorne and SE Powell boulevards.
