Sunnyside North Green Street and Sewer Project

Updated July 23, 2020

The City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services is continuing our work to repair and replace critical sewer and stormwater infrastructure. Environmental Services will continue to provide information and updates on construction schedules and activities during the COVID-19 emergency.sign up button

Environmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility – is continuing construction on the Sunnyside North Green Street and Sewer Project. Almost all the new sewers have been installed or repaired on the project and the contractor is now working on the remainder of the project that will reduce the flooding in the neighborhood. The green street planters, stormdrains, and ADA ramps are all that remain before final restoration of the streets.

Paving Schedule

With opportunities for dry weather, crews are scheduling the permanent paving in these areas. It usually takes a day of prep, and another day of paving:

Week of July 20: 

  • SE 33rd Avenue between Morrison and Alder 

  • SE 33rd Avenue between Alder and Washington 

Week of July 27: 

  • SE Alder Court to SE 32nd Avenue 

  • A small portion on SE Alder east of SE 32nd Avenue 

  • SE 36th Avenue between Alder and Washington 

Week of August 3: 

  • SE Yamhill Street between SE 32nd and 35th Avenues 

 If you are parked on those streets, please observe signs and remove your car from the designated NO PARKING area by 7 a.m. on designated dates.

Construction Schedule

Below are the anticipated construction activities over the next couple of weeks.  Please note that the schedule can change for a variety of reasons, including weather, equipment and supply availability, and coordinating with crews and subcontractors.

July 20 – August 7:

Crews are working on excavating and pouring concrete on various green streets, storm drains and ADA ramps all over the neighborhood for the next several weeks. Please see map online for specific locations.

Construction Methods

Both trenchless Cured-in-Place Pipe lining (CIPP) and open trench excavation methods were selected for this project. To learn more about these methods, visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/methods

What to Expect During Construction

  • Noise, Vibration and Dust are significant and will disrupt normal neighborhood activity.
  • Traffic Delays will occur in and near the work area. Please observe traffic control signs and follow the directions of flaggers.
  • Driveway Access to your property will be maintained, but construction may impact normal use of your driveway or entrance to your
  • business.
  • On-street parking will be restricted in and near the work zones to create a safe work environment and to stage equipment and materials.
  • Sewer, water, and other utilities will remain in service during construction.
  • Equipment Storage: Some equipment and materials may be stored on your street or nearby streets overnight.
  • Schedule Changes and Inactivity: construction schedule is subject to change due to a variety of factors, including conditions underground,
  • subcontractor schedules, and availability of materials. These same variables may cause periods of inactivity between construction phases.
