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.

Crews will not be working on November 23rd or 24th, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. 

  • Sewer repairs on NE Stafford between NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and NE 8th Avenue will continue until the new year. Crews will be replacing the mainline, repairing laterals to individual properties, and reconstructing manholes and stormwater inlets.  The team is generally working from east to west on this section. 
  • To minimize construction impacts around the holidays, sewer work will not impact the travel lanes, parking, or sidewalks on NE Martin Luther King Junior Avenue through the first of the year.

Construction Schedule

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.
