Environmental Services continues a project to repair or replace 17,000 feet (more than 3 miles) of public sewer pipes in the Humboldt neighborhood that are on average 85 years old and in deteriorating condition.
This project will protect public health and our environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
The map posted at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/Humboldt shows the anticipated construction locations through December 15. Please be aware that schedules are subject to change due to a variety of factors, including conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts and subcontractor and materials availability.
Residents and businesses should expect periods of inactivity between each phase, ranging from a few days to a few weeks. The duration depends on a variety of variables including underground conditions, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules, quality control tests and availability of materials.
To learn more about What to Expect During Construction go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/article/632833.
Scheduling final trench paving is highly dependent on paving subcontractor availability and weather. Our contractor will be working to secure paving crews during dry weather and will take advantage of unexpected openings in paving crew schedules to complete work as timely as possible.
