The City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services is continuing our work to repair and replace critical sewer and stormwater infrastructure. Environmental Services will continue to provide information and updates on construction schedules and activities during the COVID-19 emergency.
Environmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility – is finishing up a project in your neighborhood that upgraded sewers on SE Hawthorne Boulevard between SE 31st through 40th avenues. This sewer project upgraded and installed 2,900 feet of sewer mainline. The addition of the new larger pipe will address basement sewer backups, reduce street flooding, and help protect public health and the environment.
This project was previously part of the Sunnyside South Green Street and Sewer Project. It was separated from this larger project in order to complete the sewer work before the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s (PBOT) Paint and Pave Project occurs on SE Hawthorne in the spring/summer 2021.
All major construction should be finished by the end of July. All pipes and ADA ramps are already complete, and restoration is underway. The only remaining items are minor restoration or clean up (what is called a punch-list).
Below are the anticipated construction activities for the next two weeks. Please note that the schedule can change for a variety of reasons, including weather, equipment and supply availability, and coordinating with crews and subcontractors:
