Tabor Sewer Repair Project Construction Update May 25, 2017

Tabor Sewer Repair Project Construction Update: May 25, 2017

 Construction is continuing on Environmental Services’ Tabor Sewer Repair Project.

This project in its entirety is scheduled to be completed by fall 2017.

 There will be construction phases at each location:

  • video inspection
  • saw-cutting
  • spot repairs
  • manhole replacement
  • pipe installation
  • lateral connection from each building to the curb
  • stormwater inlet replacement
  • temporary paving
  • final trench paving and restoration

 

CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE

The map posted at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/tabor show the anticipated construction schedule through June 9, 2017. Work on each phase will take a few weeks to complete and there will be periods of inactivity between construction phases.

The contractor will apply temporary pavement after completing pipe installation in all work areas. Final trench paving and restoration will occur later as scheduling and weather allows.

Please be aware that our contractor will be taking advantage of dry and warmer weather as it happens for both asphalt and concrete final trench paving. There will be short notice given and street closures for up to a week where concrete is poured.

Areas on the map, marked in gray, are currently not on the schedule or are not completed.

The construction schedules are subject to change due to underground conditions, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials.

NW Flanders Street and 11th Avenue Sewer Repair Update: May 24, 2017

NW Flanders Street and 11th Avenue Sewer Repair Update: May 24, 2017

Construction is underway on an Environmental Services project to repair about 250 feet of sewer pipe in NW Flanders Street between NW 12th and NW 11th avenues. The sewer was constructed in 1916 and shows signs of wear and tear, cracks, tree root intrusion, and structural deformation due to stresses on the pipe. Construction began in April 2017, and is anticipated to be completed by August 2017. This project will help protect public health, property, and our environment.

A project map and additional information is available on the web page at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/nwflanders.

DEVELOPMENTS OF NOTE

  • After several weeks of inactivity, our contractor is now scheduled to begin excavating NW Flanders the week of June 12.
  • Neighbors will receive a door notice a few days in advance of the work.

WHAT WE’VE HEARD FROM YOU

Although crews started some construction work, neighbors asked why there is inactivity. The City’s contractor has consolidated work to complete several construction steps simultaneously, in an effort to reduce impacts to neighbors, businesses, and pedestrians. Traffic control restrictions will only be used when necessary. Although the contractor has until August to complete the work, as a result of the consolidation, construction could be complete as early as July.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

  • Construction hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. The contractor may also schedule work during the same hours on Saturdays.
  • One day/night of extended hours between 6 p.m. and 7 a.m. may be required to harden the pipe liner.
  • Construction creates noise, vibration and dust and disrupts normal neighborhood activity.
  • The contractor will maintain local access, but construction impacts the normal use of driveways or business entrances.
  • You should expect traffic delays in and near the work area. Please observe traffic control signs and follow the directions of flaggers.
  • Portland Streetcar operations on NW 11th Ave will not be disrupted.
  • The project will keep all lanes on NW 11th Ave open at all times.
  • Traffic on NW 12th Ave may see lane restrictions during work hours, but the street will remain open.
  • On‐street parking will be restricted in and near the work zones to create a safe work environment and to stage equipment and materials.
  • Some equipment and materials may be stored on your street or nearby streets overnight.
  • The city’s contractor will use open trench excavation and a trenchless construction method called Cured-In-Place-Pipe Lining. For more information on and photos of construction methods, visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/methods.
  • There may be periods of inactivity between construction phases due to a variety of factors including weather, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials.
  • A city inspector will be on-site during work hours and may be able to assist you with an immediate need during construction.
  • Sewer, water and other utilities will remain in service during construction.

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.
