Evening/Night Work Scheduled for SE Foster Road: Oct. 19 at 6pm to Oct. 21

Crews will be conducting hydrant replacement work along SE Foster Rd between SE 58th and 70th Ave from Oct 19 at 6pm to Oct 21 at 8pm.

This work will be conducted during evening hours to minimize impacts to businesses and traffic along SE Foster Rd. Noise will be caused by saw cutting, excavation, dump trucks, and backhoes. The Water Bureau has received a Noise Variance Permit to allow this work to be conducted at these times. If you have questions about the permitting process, or if you have comments you wish to share with the City, please contact the City's Noise Control Office at 503-823-7350.

When City bureaus work together, neighbors and local businesses reap the rewards.

The Water Bureau is coordinating with PBOT’s Foster Streetscape Project to perform the fire hydrant and gate valve upgrades. These upgrades will renew existing hydrants and gate valves that have exceeded their expected service lives. In addition to upgrading existing fire hydrants, new gate valves will help better control the water system and minimize service disruptions in the event of an emergency main break.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your water system!
