Beginning in mid December, crews will be working along the proposed water pipeline route that runs east from Lake Grove School and Boones Ferry Road along Lanewood Street, Douglas Circle, Twin Fir Road, Upper Drive, Iron Mountain Boulevard and Chandler Road. They will dig small holes in the roadway to locate all underground utilities and pipes, to ensure the pipeline route does not conflict with existing utilities.
Workers will use a vacuum truck and small excavator, digging holes 50 to 150 feet apart as they travel along the pipeline route. Holes will be repaired as work progresses. Work is expected to continue through the end of January 2014.
The following table outlines key locations and approximate timeframes for the digging work.

Lori Hall, Lake Oswego Review
It is perfectly silent at 7 a.m. Nov. 1 on Mapleton Drive in West Linn. No cars idling in driveways, no dogs barking, not even a bird chirping.
Then, at 7:14 a.m. there is a growing rumble heading down the road. The first of a parade of dump trucks has arrived. Every day for nearly three years, there will be ongoing construction on Kenthorpe Way and Mapleton Drive as Lake Oswego reconstructs its water treatment plant and installs a new pipeline running from the river, under Mary S. Young State Park, down Highway 43 and into Lake Oswego.
