Environmental Services is constructing green streets in the Argay Terrace Neighborhood. The project includes moving some water pipes, replacing some stormwater inlets and re-constructing some intersection sidewalks and ADA ramps, as well as constructing 53 green street planters..
When it rains in this neighborhood, water flows over streets, drains into the stormwater system and flows to the Columbia Slough, carrying pollution with it. The green street planters are built next to sidewalks to clean and filter the stormwater before it enters the slough to protect water quality, reduce the risk of basement backups, and help control stormwater runoff during heavy rain events.
Construction activities are taking place in multiple locations. There are periods of inactivity between phases, especially with the green street planters. The tentative schedule is as follows:
September 10 through September 24:
