Bonita Pump Station Construction Update

Structural Steel and Wall Panels

The Bonita Pump Station has begun to take shape! Crews are installing structural steel as well as insulated wall panels and weather barriers throughout the building. In the coming weeks, metal decking and supports for the roof will also be installed. Cement housekeeping pads, which support equipment inside the pump station, will be poured next week.

Brick Façade Finished

A brick façade was applied to the exterior portions of the concrete masonry walls that were recently finished. In the next few weeks, crews will also install metal louvers to the outside of the building.

Night construction continues – intersection of Bonita Road and Milton Court

Crews will continue night work at the intersection of Bonita Road and Milton Court to install pipelines near the new Bonita Pump Station from 8 p.m. – 5 a.m., Monday through Friday. The work in the intersection should be completed by late next week. During this time, expect temporary delays as there will be a single lane closure to accommodate equipment and materials. During work hours, the traffic signal at 74th Avenue will be turned off and flaggers will guide vehicles through the construction area. Neighbors can expect to see and hear excavators, dump trucks and lighting.

Afterwards, crews will progress onto Milton Court to install waterlines from the street to the pump station. During this time, single lane closures will be in place and flaggers will direct traffic. Temporary delays are expected. Gravel will remain on the road until all work is complete, then Milton Court will be repaved.

Thank you for your patience during construction.

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? Tigard's new water system’s storage reservoirs are all covered, meaning fewer opportunities for contaminants to enter the system.
