A contractor for the Portland Water Bureau will begin installing 1,570 feet of new water main along Northwest Saltzman Road on April 3. The project will take approximately 90 days.
This project will replace the leaking two-inch galvanized water main with a two-inch high-density polyethylene pipe to strengthen the water supply system for the area.
As the road is very narrow, NW Saltzman Road – including the Forest Park Lower Saltzman Trailhead – will be closed to all motor vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists except resident traffic during construction hours, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Alternative trailheads include Maple Trail, Leif Erickson Drive, and Wildwood Trail.
