SW 7th STREET SANITARY SEWER
As a continuation of our efforts to replace the sanitary
sewer mains on the south side of town, the City will be conducting work in the
SW 7th Street right-of-way between SW Tichenor Street and South
Nehalem Street. The commencement of
construction is anticipated to occur on or about July 31, 2014, and the
construction work will be of a relatively brief period, and is expected to continue
for approximately 2 weeks. Should a
significant revision to this project schedule occur, we will notify residents
of that change. This work is a
continuation of the sanitary sewer main installation completed earlier this
year on SW Tichenor Street.
We do not anticipate any noticeable impacts on water or
sewer services in the area as a result of this Capital Improvement
Project. However, the portion of SW 7th
Street between South Nehalem Street and SW Tichenor Street may be closed to
traffic during part or all of the construction period. Access to local driveways along SW 7th
Street in this block will be permitted if possible through directions provided
by city crews providing traffic control assistance. All other pedestrian and vehicular thru
traffic in the area should expect to be excluded from using the roadway during
construction periods as necessary.
Access to the surrounding areas can be achieved through alternate routes
within the adjacent city roadway network.
Every attempt will be made to open the roadway at the end of each daily
work period, and notifications will be posted if this condition changes due to
construction constraints and/or safety concerns. Additional street circulation impacts can be
expected at the intersection of SW Tichenor Street and SW 7th Street
when the project excavation nears that project end location. Traffic control will be provided during that
period, and occasional closures or access delays may be required.
It is our intention to minimize the impacts on residents to
the extent practicable, but please note that construction projects of this
nature typically disrupt residential activities during regular work hours. It is not our intention to conduct
construction activities over weekends, holiday, or outside of the 7:30 AM –
5:30 PM construction work window.
However, should an occasion arise that requires work activities to occur
outside of these typical work periods, we will attempt to provide advance
notice to the immediately adjacent residents.
Please recognize that our efforts are directed towards minimizing the
overall project time frames in order to return the neighborhood back to typical
living conditions as quickly as possible.
If you must drive in or adjacent to the work area,
please pay attention to traffic control personnel. Also, if you walk across fresh asphalt, concrete
or any excavated materials, please clean or remove your shoes before going into
If you have questions or concerns, please call Ray
DiPasquale, the Public Works Director, at the main City Hall number, or on his
cell phone at (503) 741-0802.
Thank you in advance for your patience and consideration.
