Current and Upcoming Work

NE 19th Avenue between Franklin and Everett - Work will be completed at this location, including temporary roadway restoration by May 30th.

NE Everett Street & NE 19th Avenue - The islands at the crosswalk have been removed and the crosswalk will be closed for several days. Once construction is complete, temporary striping will be completed until final pavement restoration takes place at the end of the project. The islands will be rebuilt during final restoration; however the overhead flashing lights will be operational in the interim.

NE Everett Street - Single lane closures will continue on Everett Street and progress north to NE 43rd Avenue and Leadbetter Road through August 31st. Drivers will experience longer delays as construction moves north past NE 23rd Ave where NE Everett transitions from 3 lanes to 2 lanes.

NE 23rd Avenue between Birch and Everett - Excavation for an air pipeline will begin on June 7th and continue through June 13th.

Lacamas (Round Lake) Park - Limited tree removal and construction of the pedestrian bridge foundations will create minor impacts for park users from June 5th-9th, and the parking lot at Lacamas Park will be closed from September 9th-30th. The overflow parking lot located on NE 35th Ave. will be open; however pedestrian access into the park will be limited during construction.

NE 43rd Avenue - Excavation for a new water line will begin June 27th and continue through August 31st.

Updated May 25, 2017 - See map below for details.

The North Shore Sewer Transmission System Project will construct 4.5 miles of new sewer pipeline to serve the area north of Lacamas Lake, which is expected to see future residential, commercial and light industrial development. The project will also build three new wastewater pump stations and a pedestrian/pipe bridge across the Lacamas Lake and Round Lake channel.

Funding for this $12 million project has been provided through Water and Sewer Revenue Bonds issued by the City. Construction work is being done by Rotschy Inc. of Vancouver, WA.

Note: Alignment and marker locations shown are for general reference only and may not match precisely with their actual location on aerial photographs.

Construction

Variable message sign.

Construction in many areas will require limiting traffic to one lane in each direction. Flaggers, traffic cones, and traffic signage will be used to direct vehicles and pedestrians during construction. Area residents, businesses and the travelling public can expect traffic delays along with some construction noise, vibration and dust in and around work areas.
No local business closures are expected during construction, and full pedestrian and vehicle access will be maintained during regular business hours.

Hours

  • Monday - Friday, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Schedule

Construction will be done in stages, so not all areas will be under construction at the same time. Work will generally progress from south to north along Everett St. to Leadbetter Rd., where it will continue west along Leadbetter Rd., through Camp Currie and terminate near the intersection of Goodwin Rd and Ingle Rd. A new waterline will also be constructed as part of the project starting near Camas High School, running west on NE 43rd Ave, crossing Everett St. and then continuing along Leadbetter Rd. to the new Lacamas Lake Elementary School. Construction is expected to be complete by May 2018.

 

Activities

Example of open trench construction.

The project will primarily use an “open cut” or “open trench” construction technique to install the new pipeline. Trench boxes and sheeting will provide vertical shoring for trench walls to minimize the necessary width of the excavation and to protect the crews working in the trench. This approach also minimizes utility and traffic impacts. In most areas the pipeline trench will occur in the center of the roadway, requiring the closure of one lane of traffic. After construction, excavated trench areas will be backfilled and the pavement restored to allow normal vehicle movement.
