As part of the Hannah Mason Pump Station construction project, crews overseen by the Portland Water Bureau will be working on SW Macadam Avenue near the intersection of SW Nevada Street on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights, October 13-15.
To minimize traffic disruptions, work will begin each night at 10 p.m. and completed by 5 a.m. the next morning.
During construction, SW Macadam Avenue will remain open in both directions but traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and some turning movements could be restricted. As with any construction project, safety is first priority. Travelers are urged to use alternate routes and are reminded to drive slowly, exercise caution, and follow the direction of flaggers when traveling in and around the construction area.
Crews will do their best to position equipment to reduce noise in the neighborhood. For more information about nighttime work and noise, visit the City of Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement Noise Control Program webpage, call the hotline at 503-823-7350, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Hannah Mason Pump Station is being built to replace the aging Fulton Pump Station on SW Nevada Street. Work began in March 2015 and will continue into fall of 2016. The Portland Water Bureau is working closely with Portland Parks & Recreation and other local agencies to coordinate this project with ongoing operations and other projects in the area. The Water Bureau will keep neighbors, local businesses, and other stakeholders updated as work progresses.
