December 15, 2020: This project has now been substantially completed. The contractor is in the process of winterizing the site. Last week a temporary pavement shim was paved over utility trenches which had settled over the course of the summer. The contractor may be onsite periodically over the next month to work on project punch list items.
In the spring/early summer the contractor will return to complete final pavement restorations within the work zone.
The Department of Public Works and the Portland Water District would like to thank the public for your patience during the project.
As a reminder this project installed over 2,100 linear feet of storm drain to replace a failing system. The Portland Water District also replaced 1,700 Linear feet of 20" water main.
The project was successfully bid and the construction contract has been awarded to D&C construction at a contract price of $1,412,600.00. The contractor will begin mobilizing to the site the first week of June with construction anticipated to begin the week of June 8th. The contractor will begin placing construction signage and variable message signs on Warren Avenue, Riverside Street and Forest Avenue during the week of May 26th. It is anticipated that this project will be substantially completed by October 31, 2020.
