Milton Court storm drain work

Next week, crews will be working on Milton Court to install a storm drain near the new Bonita Pump Station between 7 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. During this time, access to Milton Court will be open and two-way traffic will be maintained as often as possible. Cones will be placed in the road to direct traffic around the work area and flaggers may be present at times to maintain safety. After the storm drain is installed, crews will backfill the area, leaving the trenches covered with gravel. Once all work is complete in the roadway, Milton Court will be repaved.

Concrete Masonry Walls

Crews are making good progress installing the concrete masonry walls (pictured right) for the Bonita Pump Station and should be finished by the end of next week. Afterwards, a brick façade will be installed.

Bonita Road and Milton Court intersection - pipeline installation

During the last week in January, crews will begin installing waterlines and a connection to Tigard’s water system at the intersection of Bonita Road and Milton Court. Work will begin on Bonita Road at Milton Court and progress north along Milton Court. This work will be done at night from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Friday, and take approximately two weeks to cross over to Milton Court. During this time, single lane closures may be in affect and flaggers will be present to direct traffic. Temporary delays are expected.

Once crews have progressed onto Milton Court, approximately the second week in February, they will begin installing waterlines from Milton Court to the pump station. During this time, single lane closures may be in affect and flaggers will be present to direct traffic. Temporary delays are expected. Once all work is complete in the roadway, Milton Court will be repaved.

About Bonita Pump Station

The Bonita Pump Station will connect with several local water systems including Lake Oswego, Portland and Washington County. This supply collaboration will keep Tigard protected should one water supply become interrupted. Completion is expected in summer, 2015.

Did you know? Your new water system’s storage reservoirs are all covered, meaning fewer opportunities for contaminants to enter the system.
