Environmental Services will repair about 360 feet of concrete public sewer pipes in N Schmeer Road at the intersection and west of N Vancouver Avenue (see map). The 41-year-old pipes and a manhole in the intersection are severely deteriorated from sanitary sewer flows. This project will repair the pipes, replace the manhole, and install equipment to minimize corrosion. These improvements will help protect public health, water quality, and the Columbia Slough Watershed.
Construction is anticipated to begin in June 2017 and last about three months. In general, work will occur from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the same hours on Saturday as needed.
If the work zone requires flaggers to control traffic, then available hours will be from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. This will reduce traffic delays during peak commute hours.
