Downtown Water Mains

The City of Portland Water Mains project required the construction of approximately 6,600 feet of 36” welded steel water transmission mains throughout the central downtown business district.  The project included managing pedestrians and vehicle traffic in highly congested, high profile, and   potentially volatile situation.  A portion of the project spanned the main route from I-5 into downtown Portland and involved constructing a large utility pipe, under traffic which normally covered three lanes. Construction features included daily traffic management, development of over 200 traffic control plans, handling vehicular traffic, parking, transit bus traffic, signal shutdowns, and emergency vehicles.  Significant efforts were required to maintain business accesses and services during construction.
