Current and Upcoming Work

May 8-31: Activities will include bypass pumping and sewer installation starting at 19th between Franklin and Everett, proceeding north on Everett between 19th and 23rd, and west on 23rd Ave between Everett and Birch.

See map below for details.

The North Shore Sewer Transmission System Project will construct 4.5 miles of new sewer pipeline to serve the area north of Lacamas Lake, which is expected to see future residential, commercial and light industrial development. The project will also build three new wastewater pump stations and a pedestrian/pipe bridge across the Lacamas Lake and Round Lake channel.

Funding for this $12 million project has been provided through Water and Sewer Revenue Bonds issued by the City. Construction work is being done by Rotschy Inc. of Vancouver, WA.

Note: Alignment and marker locations shown are for general reference only and may not match precisely with their actual location on aerial photographs.


Variable message sign.

Construction in many areas will require limiting traffic to one lane in each direction. Flaggers, traffic cones, and traffic signage will be used to direct vehicles and pedestrians during construction. Area residents, businesses and the travelling public can expect traffic delays along with some construction noise, vibration and dust in and around work areas.
No local business closures are expected during construction, and full pedestrian and vehicle access will be maintained during regular business hours.


  • While school is in session: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. - 7 p.m.
  • When school is not in session: 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.


Construction will be done in stages, so not all areas will be under construction at the same time. Work will generally progress from south to north along Everett St. to Leadbetter Rd., where it will continue west along Leadbetter Rd., through Camp Currie and terminate near the intersection of Goodwin Rd and Ingle Rd. A new waterline will also be constructed as part of the project starting near Camas High School, running west on NE 43rd Ave, crossing Everett St. and then continuing along Leadbetter Rd. to the new Lacamas Lake Elementary School. Construction is expected to be complete by May 2018.

  • Goodwin Pump Station – August 3, 2017 through February 15, 2018
  • Pedestrian Bridge at Lacamas Lake and Round Lake channel – September 9, 2017 through September 29 , 2017
  • 232nd Avenue Pump Station – September 12, 2017 through February 19, 2018
  • Leadbetter Road (road closures to local access only; Lacamas Lake will be drawn down during this time) – October 6, 2017 – February 22, 2018


Example of open trench construction.

The project will primarily use an “open cut” or “open trench” construction technique to install the new pipeline. Trench boxes and sheeting will provide vertical shoring for trench walls to minimize the necessary width of the excavation and to protect the crews working in the trench. This approach also minimizes utility and traffic impacts. In most areas the pipeline trench will occur in the center of the roadway, requiring the closure of one lane of traffic. After construction, excavated trench areas will be backfilled and the pavement restored to allow normal vehicle movement.
