The construction area remains closed to all unauthorized personnel until the completion of construction. Drilling and blasting operations continue ahead of the open-trench pipe installation for the 8,845-foot segment through the Juniper Ridge Property towards the BNSF trenchless crossing. Restoration of the work area will begin in the Juniper Ridge Property west of the Central Oregon Irrigation District pipeline after the connection to the BNSF trenchless crossing. Drilling operations are complete in preparation for blasting for the sewer lateral to the existing North Pointe pump station. Blasting activities will be completed this month.
