Humboldt Sewer Repair Project Update: August 10, 2017

Humboldt Sewer Repair Project Update: August 10, 2017

Environmental Services continues construction on a project repairing or replacing 17,000 feet (more than 3 miles) of public sewer pipes in the Humboldt neighborhood. These pipes are on average 85 years old and in deteriorating condition. This project will protect public health and our environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

DEVELOPMENTS OF NOTE

Open Trench construction crews will be working Monday through Saturday on North Borthwick Avenue between Emerson Street and Killingsworth Court beginning this week.

  • Crews are working hard to compete work near Rosemary Anderson High School before school begins.

Cured-in-Place Pipe-Lining (CIPP) is scheduled to continue in multiple locations.

  • This work is expected to be completed during normal construction hours, but evening work may be needed to allow the liner to fully cure.

CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE

The map posted at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/Humboldt shows the anticipated construction locations through August 25. 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.

Residents 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.
