Borgen Blvd. Emergency Pavement Repair

The City currently has a westbound lane closure in place on Borgen Blvd. approaching Olympus Way. The section of roadway has sunk due to heavy rain events occurring over the last six months.

The City's Public Works Operations division has patched this area multiple times and temporary patching is no longer a viable option. Adjacent curb and gutter has also sunk and will need to be replaced. The City has hired a contractor under an emergency declaration for a permanent repair. The findings during excavation will determine the depth and ultimate extents of work.

We recognize the timing for this work is far from ideal with the current construction occurring at the intersection of Harborview Drive/Stinson Avenue and the City will complete this work as soon as possible to avoid the risk of further repairs and minimize impacts to the public. Future updates to follow.
