Richmond-South Tabor Sewer Repair Project Update May 23, 2017

Richmond-South Tabor Sewer Repair Project Update: May 23, 2017

 Construction will begin as early as August 2017

Environmental Services will begin construction this summer on the Richmond and South Tabor Sewer Repair Project. The project will repair or replace over 10,300 feet (2 miles) of public sewer pipes in your neighborhood that are on average 90 years old and in deteriorating condition. This work will also include repairing or adding 2,500 feet of service connections between properties and the public sewer. Taking these actions now will help protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of costly breaks, leaks, blockages and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

Construction is expected to begin August 2017 and take about a year to complete. The first activity you will see in your neighborhood will be crews inspecting pipes and manholes, surveying utility locations, and mobilizing materials and equipment on site. Work locations and crew activities will be covered in project updates. For more information about these preconstruction activities, please visit:  www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/precon.

For a complete list of construction phases and a map of the project area, visit the project web page.

Once construction begins neighbors and businesses should expect periods of inactivity between each phase ranging from a few days to a few weeks. The duration depends on a variety of variables including underground conditions, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules, quality control tests and availability of materials. To learn more about What to Expect During Construction go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/article/632833.

CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE

Once construction begins, crews will move from one site to another as work phases are completed, with periods of inactivity between phases. Please be aware that schedules are subject to change due to a variety of factors, including conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts and subcontractor and materials availability.

The city will use a combination of open trench construction and Cured-in-Place Pipe-Lining (CIPP). Details about each construction method are available at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/methods.

CONSTRUCTION HOURS

Construction hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the contractor may schedule work during the same hours on Saturdays. The Portland Noise Office approved night work for two locations within the project boundaries. (This work is not in the current schedule.) Homes and businesses near these locations will receive a separate notification before night work takes place. Check the project map for night work locations.

This work will also include repairing or adding over 6,000 feet of service laterals that connect houses and businesses from the curb to the public sewer in the street.

Last Thursday street festival June, July and August 2017

PBOT News Release:
Last Thursday street festival will be better than ever in June, July & August -- but not this Thursday

(May 22, 2017) The Portland Bureau of Transportation wishes to remind the community that there will not be a street festival event for Last Thursday on NE Alberta Street this Thursday, May 25. Last Thursday street closure events were funded this year for June 29, July 27 and August 31 from 6 to 9 p.m. on Alberta Street from NE 15th Avenue to NE 30th Avenue.

PBOT is the new manager of the program and is pursuing a mission to build on Last Thursday’s tradition as a fun, family-friendly showcase of grassroots art and music.

PBOT will share more information about the upcoming season in June. There will be a number of new interactive art activities and community organizations at the event this year. 

For this month, the Alberta Street galleries and shops will still have their Last Thursday openings and events. However, there will be no street or sidewalk vending permitted. Last Thursday vendors should not plan to vend this month because there will not be the support services necessary to keep the event safe and sanitary for May. 

People who plan to visit NE Alberta Street this Thursday are encouraged to take public transit, or bike or walk to the area. Expect crowded conditions on sidewalks, because the street will remain open to vehicle traffic. Use caution, as vehicles including buses will serve NE Alberta Street as normal.

Vendors who wish to register for the June, July, and August events may do so at lastthurspdx.org.

Fanno Pressure Sewer Repair Project Construction Update: May 22, 2017

Fanno Pressure Sewer Repair Project Construction Update:  May 22, 2017

This project is replacing 19 maintenance access structures in nine locations in the Garden Home area, as well as installing a pressure monitoring and recording system station off SW Railroad Street. These upgrades will ensure that the Fanno Basin Sewer System will continue to handle all wastewater flows year-round and provide better monitoring of the entire sewer system in the area. It will protect public health and the health of the Fanno Creek Watershed.

A project map is available at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/fanno.

TRAIL ACCESS UPDATE

The Fanno Creek Trail between SW 81st and 77th will open tomorrow, May 23, for up to 30 days while the pressure line is tested. The trail will close again at a later date for a shorter period to replace the two remaining structures on the second line and to restore the trail after both lines are complete. 

FOR MORE INFORMATION

If you would like more information about the project or have questions and concerns you’d like to discuss, please call or email me.
