North Area Sewer Project starting May 1

North Area Sewer Project starting May 1

North Area Sewer Project construction is anticipated to begin construction May 1 at the intersection of Third Street and Butler Market Road.  Construction and traffic impacts will continue to the end of the year.   

The Bend City Council in March approved a $3.8 million contract with Jack Robinson and Sons to build sewer system improvements in the north of Bend.

Bend’s sewer collection system (the pipe and conveyance system) is near capacity. In some areas, existing sewer pipes routinely approach overflow levels. This project will provide needed relief in the north area and improve access to employment land. In parts of the city it is difficult for Bend to add any major new employer or residential development due to sewer collection system capacity.

This project includes:

  • Force main construction from a lift station in Sawyer Park on O.B. Riley Road, south to Third Street and east on Butler Market Road connecting to an existing gravity main line near Fourth Street. 
  • Gravity system upgrades between Nels Anderson Road and North Highway 97.

 The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
