Northwest District Sewer Replacement Project

Construction Schedule

Our work crews will finish up the connections to each building on NW 25th Avenue and then move west on NW Upshur Street installing main line pipe. The pipe installation and building connections will continue on NW Upshur to the intersection of NW 27th Avenue. An additional crew will be working on outstanding items within the project area.

Final paving and restoration will be completed as the weather allows. Paving requires dry weather and a temperature above 40 degrees.

There will be periods of inactivity between phases.

Through February 3

The Portland Noise Control Office granted Environmental Services a noise variance for overnight construction at specified locations (see map) for up to five months on this project. Night work hours are 8:00 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. If you have questions or concerns during night work hours, you can call the City of Portland on-site hotline at 503-823-6290.

Construction Methods

Construction will include open trench, cured in place pipe lining (CIPP) and jack and bore. The contractor will dig trenches to the curb to install laterals that connect individual properties to the sewer. There will be no loss of service to any properties during construction.
