What’s Going On This Week 8/17-8/23

From the Lake Oswego Tigard Partnership newsletter:
River Intake Pump Station (RIPS) – demolition almost complete!
The old intake is disappearing before our eyes! Crews have been focused on sawcutting and removing large pieces of concrete slabs and walls using a wire saw. Concrete is then lifted out by the crane and removed offsite to be recycled. Soon, divers will be working in the water to remove the bottom levels of the existing intake.
Demolition is on track forcompletion by early September. After demolition, the area will be landscaped and repaved.
The RIPS contractor is working Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m., and occasional Saturdays.
