The Portland Water Bureau will install 1,300 feet of new water main on Southwest Vista Avenue starting at Southwest Clifton Street and ending approximately 150-feet past Southwest Spring Street this summer. Construction crews will also need to trench approximately 100 feet in both directions at each intersection. See map below.
The work will take approximately four months to complete and will begin in mid-June. Work must be completed this summer to minimize impacts to Ainsworth Elementary School students, parents, and staff. Work hours are Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to accommodate commute hours.
Water main installation involves cutting the road surface to the size of the pipe trench, excavating the trench, replacing old pipe or installing new pipe, filling the trench, and resurfacing/restoring the road surface that was removed.
