Moving little pipes to prepare for Big Pipe

Sewer project advances in Westmoreland
by: Eric Norberg,

During most of September, S.E. 20th was closed during weekdays between S.E. Ellis and S.E. Insley to allow Moore Excavation, contracted by the Portland Water Bureau, to reroute the water lines in the street to prevent water service interruption for residents of S.E. Insley as a result of the southernmost excavation in Portland's Eastside Big Pipe sewer upgrade.

A feature of that upgrade will be the excavation of the intersection of S.E. 18th and Insley.

At times Harold Street was blocked at 20th by September's waterline relocation.
