Construction to close section of S. Lieser Road



Construction crews will close a section of South Lieser Road in Vancouver on Tuesday, according to the city’s public works department. The closure will allow workers to install new public sewer lines.

The work will close Lieser between St. Helens Avenue and Southeast Middle Way, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to the city. Detour signs will help direct traffic around the closure.

The installation is part of a Linwood Heights project through Vancouver’s Sewer Connection Incentive Program, which aims to make public sewers available to residents now connected to private septic systems. The city hired contractor RC Northwest Inc. of Brush Prairie for the job.

Commuters are encouraged to avoid the area if possible on Tuesday, as delays are possible. Drivers who pass through nearby neighborhood streets should use caution, according to the city.
