Restoration activities taking place in Lake Oswego

Iron Mountain staging yard.

Lake Oswego Pipeline Construction: Restoration Update

Iron Mountain Boulevard Staging Yard – restoration almost complete

The contractor has been working to restore the Iron Mountain staging yard. This includes removing the rock (gravel) and geotechnical fabric that was placed, mulching, seeding and installing temporary irrigation to help stabilize the seeding. Once the restoration is complete, a third party erosion control inspector will inspect the site to ensure restoration is in compliance with the permit.

The entrance gate will remain, along with some of the large boulders, and the area will be temporarily closed to the public to enable the site to be rehabilitated. A sign will be placed saying restoration is in progress.

Restoration at the site is expected to be complete in the next week, once crews install the temporary irrigation.

McVey Ave and Green Street – striping, traffic loops and bridge work

Weather permitting, crews plan on installing the traffic loops at the intersection of McVey Avenue and State Street tomorrow, Friday, June 17, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Lane closures will be in place during this time. Expect temporary delays.

Final striping is currently scheduled for later this month, however, this is dependent on weather and contractor availability. Striping will be placed on McVey Avenue and part of Green Street. This work will be conducted at night, 8 p.m. – 5 a.m. to minimize traffic impacts.

Crews are finishing painting some final portions of the pipe bridge on McVey Avenue and cleanup work. No traffic impacts are anticipated as a result of this work.
