Gladstone Pipeline Construction Bidding Update
Water pipeline construction in Gladstone has been delayed a few months to better integrate construction activities between neighboring communities. According to the initial schedule, construction would have been underway this month. The project team has reconfigured plans so that the pipeline in Gladstone, the pipeline tunneled under the Willamette River and the pipeline through West Linn will be built together, by one or more contractors. Requests for proposals to prequalified contractors for this new package will go out next week, with construction starting in April 2014.
When a contractor is hired in March, more information will be available regarding schedule. Neighbors along the pipeline route will be invited to a “Meet the Contractor” meeting this spring to learn more about the construction process and ask questions.
