Grant Park Sewer Repair Project
Construction is beginning on the Grant
Park Sewer Repair Project to replace or repair about 11,500 feet of public
sewer pipes that are between 89 and 104 years old and failing due to age. This
project will increase sewer capacity and reduce the risks of street flooding
and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets. Construction should be
complete by March 2015.
Construction to Start on NE US Grant
Place and NE Broadway
The city selected Landis & Landis
Construction as the project contractor and work crews will start preparing for
construction as early as this week. Keep in mind schedules are always subject
to changes due to weather, supply availability, or other issues.
Construction Schedule Through June
- Work crews will inspect pipes throughout the
neighborhood, set up traffic controls and prepare for bypass pumping on NE
US Grant Place and then on NE Broadway.
- Sewer construction will begin on US Grant Place
west of NE 33rd Avenue. The street will close to through traffic during
daytime construction hours. The contractor will maintain local access but
residents may experience delays.
- There will be overnight construction on NE
Broadway at NE 33rd Avenue for about a week and a half. Nighttime construction
will allow the contractor to complete the work more quickly and minimize
traffic impacts. The contractor will post signs announcing the dates of
nighttime construction when the schedule is completed. Overnight work
hours will be 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Monday through Saturday. During night
work, traffic may be detoured to I-84 westbound and to 33rd Avenue
- After repairs at NE Broadway and NE 33rd are
complete, work on NE Broadway will move west toward NE 27th Avenue, with
work hours from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The work
will delay traffic on NE Broadway, but there will be one lane in each
direction at all times and two lanes in each direction by the afternoon
commute. Work on NE Broadway should be complete by September. There will
be intersection closures at NE 32nd, 30th and 28th avenues. The closures
will not occur at the same time. Watch for signs.
- The contractor is scheduling work on
residential streets. Sign up to receive email construction updates (see
