This project also includes installing a sewer/stormwater diversion structure that will redirect combined sewer (stormwater and sewage) from the Stark Trunk to the Willamette River during heavy rain events, reducing the likelihood of sewage releases into building basements and streets.
What's Happening Now
Work crews will periodically be in the study area to perform investigative (pre-construction) activities. Activities include site visits and evaluation, survey, utility locates, soil sampling, and geotechnical investigations.
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, construction methods, and how to minimize construction impacts on residents and businesses.
We Want to Hear from You
Environmental Services will inform residents about project activities and respond to questions and concerns in a timely manner.
