Default More Fanno trail closures

Mr. Sykes wrote to me again back on September 9th:

Fanno Trail Will Close Temporarily at SW 78^th, 82^nd, and 84^th Avenues for Additional Investigation and Testing of the Fanno Pressure Line

Date: September 9, 2011

Contact: Stephen Sykes, 503-823-7898,

Environmental Services will be conducting further investigation and testing of the Garden Home section of the Fanno Pressure Sewer. Construction crews working for BES will expose sections of the pressure sewers where pipe access manways are located. In late July 2011 a weld located at an access manway leaked wastewater.*This segment of pipe was cut out and replaced. The pressure line has not been active since the leak was discovered.

Environmental Services has notified Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District staff that segments of the trail will need to be closed beginning early next week.*Once the contractor begins excavating it will take approximately three weeks to perform the excavations, investigations, tests, and site restoration / paving. While the trail is closed, trail users will be detoured around the closure via neighborhood streets and / or the path on SW Garden Home Road.*

Environmental Services staff apologizes for this inconvenience while this important investigation is underway....
Anyone know if they have finished this current round of work?
