S.E. 7th Street Line Replacement (Phase II, III)
S.E. 7th Street in Hermiston.
|PROJECT ID:||S 5.0|
- Replaces about 1,960 feet of sanitary sewer line on S.E. 7th Street between E. Newport Ave. and E. Highland Ave.
- New polyvinyl chloride sewer pipe and precast manholes will be installed
- Roadway restoration, traffic control measures, and sewage bypass will be included
WHY IT’S NEEDED
The existing sewer line lacks the capacity to provide expanding service to the Eastern Oregon Trade and Event Center and Cook Industrial Area. The replacement will allow continued development in the area.
*The original project scope only included street restoration for the disturbed portion. It was determined that the cost of only doing surface restoration was significantly more expensive than repaving the full width of the street on a per square footage basis, mainly due to costs associated with the extra work needed to ensure minimal damage to the rest of the street. Due to the age and condition of the length of the street to be disturbed, it was determined fiscally prudent to repave the full width of the street at an additional cost of $35,000.
