Concrete placement set to begin for WR1 footings and columns

Waluga Reservoir 1 Roof Replacement Construction Update

Last week, the large crane lifted a smaller crane inside the tank! This small crane is helping to remove the remaining shoring support, and will be used for forming and pouring the footings and columns.

New activity starting soon – concrete placement for footings and columns

Next week, crews will begin forming footings for the new columns. Weather permitting, late next week or early the following, the first set of footings will be poured. Once the footings are in place, concrete placement for the columns will begin. Neighbors should expect an increase in noise and truck traffic during concrete pours, as a large pumper truck and concrete trucks will be operating on site.

LOT project 90 percent complete

by Robert Malee, West Linn Tidings - December 8, 2016

In the news...

For more than two years, one of the tallest structures in West Linn loomed over the Robinwood neighborhood.

It wasn’t a building or a water tower, but rather a bright red crane brought in for the bulk of construction at the new Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership (LOT) treatment plant. Last week, LOT and nearby residents celebrated a significant milestone as a smaller portable crane arrived to permanently remove the larger tower crane.

Crane Removal at the Water Treatment Plant

Water Treatment Plant Construction Update

Tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday, November 30, a large mobile crane will be delivered to the water treatment plant. This crane will be used to take down the red tower crane, one section at a time. From Wednesday through Friday, several flatbed trucks will be traveling to and from the site, carrying sections of the crane. Trucks will use both Mapleton Drive and Kenthorpe Way entrances to enter the plant site, and will exit on Kenthorpe Way.

Crane removal is expected to be complete by the end of the week. During this time, there will be an increase in truck traffic on both Mapleton Drive and Kenthorpe Way. Please expect some short-term traffic delays during this activity.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
