February 16, 2017:

  • As of this week:
    • 64 of 198 locations completed in MCDD!
    • 54 of 54 locations completed in SDIC!
  • We are finalizing permits to begin drilling work on Marine Drive.

Coming Soon:

Beginning later next week or the week of February 27, we will begin levee evaluations on Marine Drive. The drilling work will require traffic disruptions. Levee Ready Columbia has worked with our partners at the Columbia Corridor Association, the Port of Portland, and the Cities of Portland, Gresham, Troutdale, and Fairview to plan the project so that it will have as little impact on traffic as possible while still providing a cost-effective and safe method for completing the work.

For more information you can read a brief overview of the project or visit our Project Library page to find detailed drilling work plans. All of the drilling is being conducted according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers specifications  to ensure that the work does not result in damage to the levee or increased risk of flooding.
