Project to reduce river flooding risks along Orville Road East starts Aug. 31

The next phase of a Puyallup River flood protection project along Orville Road East will begin on Aug. 31. The project is expected to be completed in January 2021. 

The work will take place along the left bank of the Puyallup River downstream of Champion Bridge near Orting. Orville Road East will remain open during the work, but motorists should be cautious of trucks entering and leaving the project site.

The project will protect an approximately 2-mile section of Orville Road East from the risks of the river migrating toward the road. Crews will construct a setback revetment/barricade using engineered log jams.

This work is part of a multi-phase project and will extend on segments built during previous phases.

The project’s contractor is Active Construction Inc. The construction cost is approximately $1.2 million.
