Pipeline Construction Update:

Laying pipe in the upper portion of East Waluga Park

East Waluga Park, Lanewood St. and Iron Mtn. Blvd.

Construction of the 24” pipeline in the upper portion of Waluga Park near Parkhill Street is almost complete!

Starting the week of January 20, crews will begin installing pipe in the East Waluga Park parking lot and progressing towards Quarry Road. This section of the pipeline is expected to be complete by the end of February 2014. Park trails and areas disturbed during construction of the pipe will be restored with gravel or reseeded and planted later in spring.

Generally, over the next month work hours will be 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Friday. Once construction is complete in the Park, crews will move east of Boones Ferry Road, installing pipe along Lanewood Street and Douglas Circle. Construction work along Douglas Way, Lake Grove Elementary School and Boones Ferry Way will occur in summer.
