The Portland Water Bureau reports that repair work on a 24-inch diameter water main that ruptured yesterday (April 18) on SE Stark Street near SE 55th Avenue will continue today. The type of damage to the 106-year old cast iron pipe was beyond routine repairs. Crews will have to temporarily reduce the flow of water to the area for about four to eight hours. Affected residents were notified.
East bound traffic will again be detoured one block to SE Morrison Street, up SE 58th Avenue and back to SE Stark Street. Crews expect the pipe repairs to be completed later today. Permanent street repaving work will occur when there are dry weather conditions.
