This week, the Astoria Combined Sewer Overflow project contractor Tapani will continue working on Eighth Street between Duane Street and Harrison Avenue. Sewer and storm pipe will be installed between Franklin Avenue and Harrison. Work on curbs and intersection corner ramps will continue on Eighth and 11th streets.

On 10th Street, the block of roadway between Jerome and Kensington is being rebuilt and is expected to be paved by the end of the week. On 11th Street, there will be waterline work happening prior to trench paving, while on 12th Street, storm and sewer pipe is scheduled to be installed between Grand and Harrison avenues.

Paving is scheduled for today and either Thursday or Friday next week. The trench areas on Ninth Street between Marine Drive and the Columbia River will be paved as well as Jerome between 10th and 11th streets and between Irving and Jerome avenues. Later this week, trench paving is scheduled to include most of 11th and likely 10th Street from Jerome to Kensington avenues.

CenturyLink will continue working on Exchange between Seventh and Eighth streets. The intersection of Eighth and Exchange streets is expected to be closed during this work.
