Pipeline Construction Update: Parkhill Street, East Waluga Park and Quarry Road

Construction staging area in the East Waluga Park parking lot

Starting on December 30, a large delivery of pipe materials will arrive at the construction staging area in the East Waluga Park parking lot on Quarry Road. Crews will begin laying pipe in early January near Parkhill Street, through Waluga Park and east to Quarry Road. This section of the pipeline is expected to be complete by the end of February 2014.

Most construction equipment and vehicles will access the construction area through East Waluga Park parking lot. At times, crews and trucks may need access from Parkhill Street, to deliver materials and equipment. Work hours are 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday to Friday and 8:00 am to 6:00 pm on Saturdays.

Once construction is complete in the Park, crews will move east of Boones Ferry Road, installing pipe along Lanewood Street and Douglas Circle.

In early January, crews will also begin trimming trees that are overhanging in the right of way along the pipeline route, from Quarry Road east along Douglas Way, Lanewood Street, Douglas Circle, Twin Fir Road, Upper Drive, Iron Mountain Blvd and Chandler Road. This should take about two weeks to complete. At times there will be single-lane closures on narrow streets to accommodate equipment, but no total street closures are anticipated. Please watch for flaggers.
