Field Work Notice - January 6, 2017

As construction wraps up, the contractor is working on clean-up tasks throughout the project area.  The field work notice will focus on major work items rather than these clean-up tasks.

WEST SIDE WORK

Hwy. 43: Next week permanent concrete barriers will be placed on the outside of the northbound lane under the bridge and a slope under the southeast interchange ramp will be restored, as the work zone is vacated.

Multiuse Path Bridge:  A protective barrier needs to be installed at the bottom of the fence on this bridge that will carry bicyclists and pedestrians from the regional trail under the main bridge to reach its south sidewalk.  County staff will install the barrier later this month after parts arrive. 

Trolley Corridor: A subcontractor has completed installation of the tracks along the trolley line between SW Miles St. and south of the bridge. Weather permitting, the track crossings at Macadam Bay driveway and the regional trail north of the bridge will be paved on Monday, Jan. 9. Raised warning domes for visually impaired pedestrians will be installed where the trail crosses the tracks near the bridge. The Portland Tribune ran this article about the return of the historic trolley service from Portland to Lake Oswego this summer.

EAST SIDE WORK

Spokane St.:  Weather permitting, the contractor plans to pour concrete to repair damage to the end of Spokane St. next week. Adjacent driveways to condos and an office building will remain open during the work.

Tacoma/6th:  The old project office on the south side of Tacoma at SE 6th Ave. has been vacated and a chain link fence installed around the property.

Condos: The parking lots at Riverpark Condominiums have reopened and the north entry gate has been installed for Sellwood Harbor condos. An open chain link fence is being installed on the slope between the two condo complexes.

Greenway Trail:  Chain link fencing is being installed around the eastbank bridge Bent 6. Along the riverbank trail south of Spokane St., base rock and paving are planned next week, weather permitting. A fence between the trail and the river will be installed after the paving.

CONSTRUCTION WORK HOURS

Weekday work hours are typically 7 am to 5 pm.  No weekend work is planned Jan. 7-8.
