Project Area

The project will occur at NE Grand Ave between NE Schuyler St and NE Broadway. See map for project boundary details.

General Schedule

Construction is anticipated to begin in July 2023 and will take up to four months to complete. Before construction begins, crews will be in the project area to prepare work zone for construction. There may be phases of inactivity due to weather or subcontractor availability. 

What's Happening Now

Over the next few months, work crews will periodically be in the project area to perform investigative activities. Activities include site visits and evaluation, survey, soil sampling, utility locates, pipe cleaning and inspection. Some investigative activities will require restricting parking and closing travel lanes. The traveling public should expect minor traffic delays. Information gathered will help determine the repair locations, and how to minimize construction impacts on residents and businesses. Learn more about these pre-construction activities.
