Sewer repairs underway:
Cured-in-place-pipe lining is happening on several blocks during February. Residents near the lining activity may notice a chemical odor and are being asked to limit water use during pipe lining. Neighbors will see boiler trucks and crews at manholes, but there is no digging in the street.
The most noticeable pipe lining activity will be occurring on Wednesday, February 18 on NE Broadway at NE 28th Avenue (see below for traffic advisory information).

Sewer repairs restrict lanes on NE Broadway at 28th on Wednesday
A sewer repair project will require lane restrictions on NE Broadway at NE 28th Avenue from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 18, while Environmental Services repairs a segment of deteriorating sewer pipe in NE 28th Avenue that crosses the width of NE Broadway. The pipe will be repaired using a lining process that does not require excavation.
Eastbound travel on NE Broadway will be reduced to one lane at NE 28th Avenue. Southbound motor vehicle traffic on NE 28th Avenue at NE Broadway will be restricted for most of the day. Southbound bicycle and pedestrian access will be provided on NE 28th Avenue through the intersection.
The traveling public is advised to avoid the area if possible. Motorists should expect delays due to the lane restrictions, travel cautiously, and observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers. Southbound motorists on NE 28th Avenue wishing to cross NE Broadway are advised to use alternate routes, such as NE 21st and NE 33rd avenues.
