Environmental Services is nearing completion on 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.

Construction Schedule

Our contractor will be working to secure paving crews during dry weather and will take advantage of unexpected openings in paving crew schedules to complete work as timely as possible.

  • The map below shows the remaining street restoration work to occur in May. 
  • Residents should expect short notice and street closures for up to a week where concrete is poured.
  • Crews will also be completing miscellaneous outstanding items throughout the project area.

Many of you have informed us of medical concerns, private events, landscaping, or home improvements that were occurring within the project area. We know construction can be inconvenient and disrupt normal daily activity. Your communication has helped us reduce our overall impact while performing this necessary work. Thank you!
