Interlaken, Inc. was the low bidder on a City of Portland Demolition project today! The project should be awarded by the end of the week and work should start by the 1st of June. This is the third demolition/deconstruction project Interlaken has been awarded by the City of Portland. The work mainly consists of taking down a 1700 square foot house and outbuilding that is situated near Johnson Creek off of Foster Road. The City of Portland has been systematically aquiring property in the floodplain area and removing the buildings on the properties as a part of the East Lents Floodplain Restoratioin Project. The Restoration Project will add flood storage, reduce the frequency of flooding on Foster Road, improve habitat for wildlife, assist with meeting State of Oregon water quality standards and revitalize the area.
