[ARCHIVED] Bedford Street Sewer Separation Project: Final Restoration Work

The Portland Public Works Department would like to provide a status update on the Bedford Street Sewer Separation project.

The City’s contractor, Shaw Brothers, will return to the project site to complete final trench pavement restorations, roadway striping, final clean-up and other punch list items on Forest Avenue, Belmeade Road, Deerfield Road and Baxter Blvd during the month of May. The final surface course of pavement will be installed on Belmeade Road and Deerfield Road once the project punch list items have been completed. It is anticipated that this final phase of work will be completed by June 15th. Work will occur intermittently throughout this period.

Project work will typically run from 7:00am to 7:00pm. The contractor will be required to keep driveway access open to all driveways unless it is necessary to close in order to complete a section of the work. If driveway access needs to be disrupted the contractor will be required to give sufficient notice to owners prior to the disruption.

During the project the streets will be posted “No Parking” as necessary during construction activities. This is done to protect your vehicle and to make moving around the site easier for the contractor. We restrict parking only when absolutely necessary, so please make sure you read the signs. Your vehicle will be towed if in violation. If your vehicle can’t be parked off the road we would suggest you park on one of the adjacent streets and walk to your home or business. You will have access to driveways on a daily basis. The contractor will be stockpiling necessary materials for the project along the side of the road within the City right of way. The contractor will be using heavy equipment during the project. We ask you to use caution when driving through the work zones and be aware of equipment and personnel for the safety of all.

Drivers and residents should expect lane closures and traffic delays on all project streets during construction hours. Please be sure to check the City’s website regularly for project traffic updates. https://www.portlandmaine.gov/2320/Bedford-Street-Sewer-Separation-Project 

Trash and recycling pickup for all streets will remain the same. Please make sure both trash and recycling are at your curb by 6:00 AM.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact the City. Justin Pellerin can be reached at reached at JRP@portlandmaine.gov.
