Construction Updates

Current Work (Updated 12/27/16)

OHSU contractor is filling in old stormwater pipes and performing environmental remediation work on OHSU property to prepare the Bond Avenue corridor for road construction.

Anticipated Work 

Starting in February 2017 PBOT contractor will begin constructing retaining walls and placing fill dirt for elevated portions for SW Bond Avenue. Fill must be applied in layers and allowed to settle over a period of eight months to one year in order to minimize the risk of future road settlement. This process is known as surcharge or pre-consolidation and will last throughout 2017. In summer 2017, utility relocation and environmental remediation work will take place under the Marquam Bridge to make way for the Bond Avenue connection to the existing River Parkway cul-de-sac.

Major road construction will take place in 2018 and is scheduled for completion in fall 2018. This page will be updated periodically as construction progresses.
