Environmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility – has almost completed constructing a project to replace approximately 300 feet of storm pipe on NE 13th Avenue at NE South Shore Road. The existing pipe is blocked at several locations and has backed up water into the neighborhood. This storm pipe replacement will increase system capacity and relieve neighborhood flooding.   
Project Area The map below illustrates where this project is constructing sewer improvements.

What’s Happening Now Please note: the construction schedule may change due to weather, conditions underground, subcontractor schedules, materials availability, and other factors. The Rest of This Week Work on connection between two maintenance holes on NE 13th Avenue north of NE Golf Court. Complete excavation of culvert adjacent to 9801 NE 13th Avenue. Week of January 31 Complete construction, including cleaning area, videotaping, and testing sewer line. Pavement Restoration When construction is complete, crews will place temporary asphalt in the sections disturbed by sewer construction. This temporary pavement will be in place until another crew is available to do final pavement restoration. This could be two to four weeks after construction and is dependent on weather and contractor availability. Crews will replace and repave the sections of pavement that were disturbed by sewer construction. Crews will grind down the temporary asphalt patches they applied over sewer trenches to remove any cracks, ruts, and imperfections. Then they will place a three-inch layer of asphalt paving on top of the surface to fill any holes and level it off. The broad trenches where crews had to dig in the street will have a fresh new asphalt surface. Because conditions are such that new paving will extend beyond the trench width on this street, it is necessary to restrict vehicle access during paving.   For More Information Environmental Services continues to work with the community to help resolve issues.
