The Water Bureau replaced 960 feet of an aging water main (pipe), installed three new hydrants, replaced one existing hydrant, and renewed sixteen service connections.
In fall 2019, we
replaced 960 feet of an aging water main (pipe),
installed two new hydrants,
replaced one existing hydrant,
renewed sixteen water service connections from the new pipe to nearby property lines,
paved the street, and
provided temporary patches in curbs and sidewalk ramps that need further repair.
The existing main was installed in 1961 and had six breaks in recent years. The new pipe will reduce the frequency of breaks and be more earthquake resistant.
NE 143rd Avenue, south of NE Sacramento Street
What to Expect
Street parking may be limited. We may use “No Parking” barricades.
Your street may be closed to all but local traffic during construction hours. Crews will try to keep driveways accessible, but you may have to park on a side street during construction hours.
Mail, garbage, and delivery services will have access.
You may experience noise, dust, and traffic delays.
What's Happening Now
This project is paused while the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) reviews our design for curb replacements and sidewalk ramps.
Paving and ADA-accessible sidewalk ramps: We will repave the intersection and install ADA-accessible sidewalk ramps on the southwest and southeast corners of the intersection at 143rd and Sacramento. We have designed the sidewalk ramps and the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is reviewing our design. We hope to finish this part of the project by the end of 2020. This will depend on weather and on how quickly the design is reviewed.
