Environmental Services has completed design on a project to extend the public sewer system in NW 24th Avenue between NW Thurman and NW Raleigh streets. The project will construct 248 feet of mainline public sewer pipes, 3 manholes, and 75 feet of service laterals, which will connect private properties to the new public sewer. This project will provide public sewer service to a new development and resolve nonconforming sewer connections for three properties.
The project will construct two sewer extensions in NW 24th Avenue – one south of NW Thurman Street and another south of NW Savier Street.
The construction schedule is currently uncertain. Once construction begins, the project will take about two months to complete. General work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and Saturday if needed.
Crews will install mainline public sewer pipes using open trench excavation. It will be necessary to dig a trench in the street to install the pipes. Crews will construct sewer service laterals using a trenchless method to avoid an existing telecommunications line and other utility conflicts in the public right-of-way.
After sewer construction, crews will backfill the trenches and apply a temporary asphalt patch. After all work has passed inspection, crews will return to restore the patched trenches with a fresh new asphalt surface.

Before the major pipe work begins, crews will be in the area preparing for construction. Activities may include locating and marking utilities, trimming trees and installing tree protection, staging equipment and materials, and setting up parking and traffic controls.
In addition, this project will require removal of the historic trolley tracks in NW 24th Avenue before the sewer improvements can be constructed.
The City’s Office of Procurement Services is currently reviewing this project and its construction contract options. When Procurement Services completes their review, Environmental Services will notify the public of the construction schedule. You can expect the following impacts during construction:
