Wembley Park Road

Wembley Park Road Rehabilitation

The City is rehabilitating Wembley Park Road from Country Club Road to Twin Fir Road. Work includes improvements to utility pipes – stormwater, drinking water and sewer – as well as paving. The pavement is deteriorating (current condition shown in above photo) and was prioritized for repair by the City. Work is underway and scheduled to be complete in the fall.


 

Wembley Park Road Construction Starts

The City is rehabilitating Wembley Park Road from Country Club Road to Twin Fir Road. The work should be complete in the fall.

One-lane closures as crews do advance work, including locating and moving utility pipes.

Happening now:

Read about current and upcoming work.  

Spring though Summer:

New storm sewer and water work will start in the spring under full road closures in short segments with detours, but local access to homeowners in the work area will be provided at all times.

Late this fall, the neighborhood will have nearly a mile of smooth new road and improved storm drainage — but your patience is needed for everyone’s safety. Please:

  • Abide by all traffic controls.
  • Avoid work areas as much as possible, whether on foot or on wheels.

What to Expect

Construction spring/summer 2020:

There will be full road closures in short segments, with signed detours, as improvements are completed. Drinking water, stormwater, sewer pipes will be rehabilitated, and then the area will be paved. Local access to homes in the work area will be provided at all times.

By late fall, the neighborhood will have nearly a mile of smooth new road and improved storm drainage.

Your patience during construction is appreciated to maintain everyone’s safety. Please:

  • Abide by all traffic controls.
  • Avoid work areas as much as possible, whether on foot or on wheels.

Work Hours

Work hours are generally, Mondays through Fridays, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Work zones will be fully closed to traffic, with detours in place 24 hours per day. Closed segments will be unsafe for travel, with excavation up to a foot deep. Only neighbors will be allowed access near closed segments.

Detours may temporarily increase traffic on nearby streets.

SCOPE OF THE WORK

The city will be completing the following work:

  • Water main: relocating and rebuilding the water main before the road work.
  • Storm drainage: replacing the stormwater system to provide better drainage and improve water quality.
  • The road: removing and replacing the surface pavement and the underlying roadbed more than a foot deep — no more cracks and potholes!

The sanitary sewer system was repaired last year in some locations. NW Natural upgraded some of their natural gas infrastructure in advance of the road work.

Existing walking paths near or along the road will remain in place after construction. No additional paths or sidewalks are being added.

ACCESS FOR SERVICES

Fire and emergency services will have access to the neighborhood at all times.
The City and the contractor will help maintain neighborhood services such as garbage pickup and mail delivery.

DRIVEWAY ACCESS

If your home is on Wembley Park Road, construction will likely block your driveway at some point for a short period. Crews will leave advance notice at your front door.

If you’re planning a move or other work that depends on driveway access, get in touch as soon as possible. (See contact information below.)
