Major pipeline work on Mapleton Drive almost complete

Crews approach the intersection of Mapleton Drive and Highway 43

West Linn Pipeline Construction Update: Mapleton Drive

Major pipeline work on Mapleton Drive is almost complete! Pipe is currently being installed near the intersection of Mapleton Drive and Highway 43.

No work is planned on Mapleton Drive tomorrow, Saturday, February 6 – crews will be working over in Gladstone tomorrow night to repair some concrete panels on Highway 99E. Mapleton Drive work will resume on Monday, February 8, to install the remaining pieces of pipe at the intersection of Highway 43.

Once this is complete, crews will begin installing an air valve and vault near the corner of Highway 43 and Mapleton Drive, placing temporary pavement patches, pressure testing and disinfecting the pipe between the plant and Highway 43 and making final connections to the system. This work is expected to continue through February. Crews will also begin restoration and final “punch list” activities on Mapleton Drive.

Work hours on Mapleton Drive are 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

Road closure and detour route during pipeline construction

The road will continue to be closed to through traffic at the active work zone as it moves along Mapleton Drive. While crews are working close to Highway 43, all residents and traffic on Mapleton Drive, including those located west of Trillium Creek, will need to use the detour route during work hours, as the road will be closed at the intersection of Highway 43. Please follow the detour signs directing traffic around the closure. Access for pedestrians and emergency vehicles will be maintained.
