The Portland Water Bureau will be installing approximately 280 feet of eightâ€inch diameterÂ water main pipe, of which130 feet will be inside a 24â€inch diameter casing pipe on SoutheastÂ Brooklyn Street between Southeast Gideon Street and Southeast 16th Avenue. The eightâ€inchÂ ductile iron main will replace an existing eightâ€inch castiron main.
Preliminary work has begun, and the trench excavation and pipe installation will begin in sometimeÂ in July, early August 2013.
The work is anticipated and last approximately twoâ€four weeks. WorkÂ hours are from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Southeast Brooklyn Street will be closed to through traffic butÂ open for local access and business access only for the last week of the construction.
The main replacement project will impact the street art drawing project, as the trench will cutÂ across the intersection of Southeast Brooklyn Street and Southeast 16th Avenue in two placesÂ so that the pipe can be connected to the existing watermains.
