Environmental Services continues construction on the Woodlawn-King Streets Sewer Repair Project. The project will repair or replace over 16,000 feet (over 3 miles) of public sewer pipes in your neighborhood that are on average 90 years old and in deteriorating condition. This work will also include repairing or adding over 6,000 feet of service laterals that connect houses and businesses from the curb to the public sewer in the street. This project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

This project is on track to be completed winter, 2018.

Paving will continue throughout the project area over the next several weeks as weather and crew availability allows.

Crews are scheduled to do open-trench construction to replace the mainline, as well as associated spot repair, manhole and lateral work, in the following locations:

  • Nighttime work on NE Killingsworth between NE Martin Luther King Boulevard and NE 8th Avenue
  • NE 12th Avenue from NE Humboldt Street to NE Webster Street
  • NE Webster Street from NE 13th Avenue to NE 14th Avenue
  • NE Alberta Street from NE 11th Avenue to NE 14th Avenue
  • NE 11th Avenue at NE Wygant Street
  • Paving will continue throughout the project area over the next several weeks as weather and crew availability allows.
  • Businesses near the construction  zone are OPEN during regular business hours and sidewalks will remain open.

Night Work Update

Next week, nighttime sewer construction on NE Killingsworth Street between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and NE 8th Avenue avenues will begin and continue for several weeks. 

  • Nighttime construction hours are 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.Killingsworth Night Work Map
  • Work will require flaggers to direct two-way traffic using one lane. Please observe all traffic control signs and follow the direction of flaggers.   
  • Motorists and bicyclists should expect delays during construction hours from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. until repairs are complete. All lanes will re-open to traffic after construction hours.
  • If conditions require the construction zone to increase in area, it may not be possible to maintain a safe travel lane.  In this case, a detour around the construction zone may be required to maintain the safety of workers and the public.

Work is being completed at night to reduce daytime traffic impacts on this highly traveled road. For noise complaints during night work, please call our onsite noise hotline: (503) 823-8458. Thank you in advance for your patience.
