NE SPRING STREET CONSTRUCTION NOTICE
In order to facilitate an
improvement to the drainage conditions in NE Spring Street near, the City will
be conducting work in the NE Spring Street right-of-way in close proximity of
the NE Spring Street/NE 5th Street intersection. The commencement of construction is
anticipated to occur on or about Monday September 8, 2014, and is expected to continue
for approximately 5 days until Friday September 12, 2014. In general, work hours are anticipated to run
from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM, with the road closure expected for the entire work
period. We will attempt to re-open the
roadway as quickly as possible, but the road may need to be closed for the
duration of the project depending upon field conditions encountered. Only a short portion of the roadway will be
affected, and circulation to driveways and other roads adjacent to the
construction area can be accomplished by using NE Poplar Street and NE 6th
Street. If possible, we will attempt to
open the roadway at the end of each workday period, but this may not be
possible when excavation conditions warrant complete roadway closure. Should a significant revision to this project
schedule occur, we will notify residents of that change.
We do not anticipate having significant impacts to circulation
in the area, as alternate routes are available for the duration of
construction, and we do not expect to block any driveway accesses for other
than very brief periods to relocate construction vehicles. Access to local driveways along NE Spring
Street in this block will be permitted if at all possible through directions given
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. Notifications
will be posted if this condition changes due to construction constraints and/or
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 the noted work
hours. It is not our intention to
conduct construction activities over weekends, holidays, or outside of the 8:00
AM – 5:00 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 your home.
If you have questions or concerns, please call Ray
DiPasquale, the Public Works Director, at the main City Hall number (503)
728-2622, or on his cell phone at (503) 741-0802.
Thank you in advance for your patience and consideration.
