Over the next few months, city staff will be finalizing design of the project.
Over the next several months, crews will be locating utilities, surveying, inspecting sewer pipes and manholes with closed circuit TV, and drilling to take soil and pavement samples. These activities occur over time, rather than all at once, and will help engineers determine the appropriate construction method at each location.
For more information about these activities, click here.
A noise variance is required when work occurs outside normal construction hours, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday - Saturday. This includes work after 6:00 p.m. and before 7:00 a.m., and all hours on Sunday.
This project has been granted a noise permit to allow night work at three locations:
- SE Cesar Chavez Boulevard between Brooklyn Street and Powell Boulevard for up to 21 nights.
- SE Franklin Street between 54th and 55th avenues for one night.
- SE Division Street at 60th Avenue for two nights and a Sunday.
The Portland Noise Office can be reached by mail at 1221 SW 4th Avenue, Portland, OR 97204 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please reference "Richmond-South Tabor" and which of the three locations your comments addressing.
