N Thunderbird Way Outfall Repair Project

Sewer and Stormwater
Environmental Services is designing a project to repair an aging stormwater pipe and outfall that is in deteriorating condition. This repair will help to protect the public and our environment by reducing costly breaks, leaks, and blockages.
Construction is expected to begin in August of 2024 and should take about 6 months to complete.

Project Area

This project is located on private property southwest of the intersection of North Larrabee Avenue and North Thunderbird Way. 

What's Happening Now

Currently the project team is working with the Union Pacific Railroad to ensure that crews are able to access the area near the tracks safely. Work is on pause while the necessary plans and permits are being discussed.

What to Expect During Construction

Construction creates noise, vibration, and dust and can disrupt normal neighborhood activity. We want you to be safe around the work site. Please keep children, pets, bikes, cars, and trucks away from the tools, machines, supplies, and construction workers. A city inspector will be 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. Learn more about what to expect during sewer construction
