What's Happening Now?

survey color markings and what they mean

Business Survey

Over the next few months, city staff will be finalizing design of the project.

Pre-Construction Activities

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.

Night Work

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.
