Clinton Green Street and Sewer Construction Update: September 5, 2014

As part of the Tabor to the River Program, Environmental Services will begin construction on the Clinton Green Street and Sewer Project next week. Over the next year, this project will replace 3,800 feet of sewer pipe installed over 100 years ago, construct 24 green street planters and add two blocks of pervious paving. These improvements will protect public health, property and the environment, and reduce the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses.

 

A project map is available at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/clinton and Tabor to the River Program information is available atwww.portlandoregon.gov/bes/tabortoriver.

 

DEVELOPMENTS OF NOTE

SE 21st Closures at Division Start Next Week

  • Periodic closures of southbound traffic on SE 21st avenue between SE Division and Clinton Streets will begin next week, from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. as needed, Monday through Friday.
  • Motorists and cyclists traveling south on SE Ladd or SE 20th avenues to SE Clinton Street will be detoured to 22nd Avenue.
  • In addition, SE Ivon Street between SE 20th and 22nd avenues will be closed to through traffic. Local access will be maintained. Residents may access their homes from SE 20th and 22nd avenues.
  • Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.

 

Beginning mid-September, SE Ivon Street between 20th and 21st avenues and between 21st and 22nd avenues will be closed to all traffic, 24 hours a day, for about 5 weeks

o    Crews will excavate the existing asphalt and repave with pervious (or porous) concrete. Pervious pavement allows water to go through the street and directly into the ground reducing the amount of stormwater that enters the sewer system.

o    Prior to this work, crews will install new lateral public sewer pipes that connect homes on SE Ivon (20th to 22nd avenues) to the existing main sewer pipe. This work will begin next week and is expected to take several days.

o    While crews are excavating pavement, traffic will be delayed on SE 20th and SE 22nd between SE Division and Clinton streets. Excavation and preparation for paving is expected to take about 2- 3 weeks.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

  • Construction creates noise, vibration and dust and disrupts normal neighborhood activity.
  • Typical work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the contractor may schedule work during the same hours on Saturdays.
  • Please stay clear of all construction activities and keep children, pets and vehicles out of construction areas.
  • Traffic control signs are in place. The contractor maintains local access, but you should expect delays.
  • On-street parking in or near the work area may be limited. Please observe no parking signs.
  • Equipment and materials may be stored on nearby streets overnight.
  • There may be periods of inactivity between construction phases.
  • A city inspector is on-site during work hours and may be able to assist you with construction concerns. Inspectors typically wear a hard hat and safety vest with “City of Portland” on the back.
