Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock Sewer Repair

Update: October 23, 2017

Environmental Services continues 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 over 85 years old and are deteriorating due to age. This project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

Schedule

Standard City of Portland construction hours are 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. There may be work during the same hours on Saturday. The Portland Noise Office has granted Environmental Services a noise variance to allow evening and night work at two locations.

The map below shows the anticipated construction locations through November 3. Please be aware that construction schedules are subject to change due to underground conditions, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials.

 Progress Map

What to Expect During Construction

  • Work on each block will be conducted in multiple phases with periods of inactivity between each phase ranging from a few days to a few weeks.
  • Except for night work, 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.
  • 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.
