Argay Green Street Project

Updated March 9, 2018

Environmental Services has started construction 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.  Argay Green Street locations

Construction Schedule

Anticipated work from March 5 through March 23:

  • Crews are either finishing up or beginning to replace stormwater inlets and connecting stormwater pipes to manholes on NE 125th from Sandy Blvd to Shaver, on Prescott between 125th and 131st, and on 131st from Sandy to Shaver.
  • Crews will also be relocating waterlines in the same areas and NE 133rd off Sandy Blvd.

Environmental Service's contractor plans to complete all of the pipe and stormwater inlet work first, then anticipates they will start working on the green street planters towards the end of April.
