D Avenue Block Party: Celebrate Public Works Week and the Completion of D Avenue!
Infrastructure and Public Works – our sewers, water, streets, bridges, roads, pathways, rail lines, and communication lines – affect us daily. Infrastructure gets us to work, our children to school, powers our homes and businesses, brings water to our taps, carries our waste away and protects our public health. These resources improve our quality of life every day.
The City’s Engineering, Public Works, and the Library Departments are partnering together to commemorate the one-year anniversary of breaking ground on the D Avenue Improvement Project and to celebrate National Public Works Week (May 19-25). Join us for a street party celebration! We will have fun and creative games for all ages, light snacks, a Master Gardeners’ presentation for adults on how to create a rain garden (begins at 7 p), and tours of the new rain gardens and swales on D Avenue. Get a behind-the-scenes view of Oscar the Street Sweeper, climb aboard an excavator, or watch a live video of a robotic camera inspecting a sewer pipe.
This event is open to all Lake Oswego community members and will take place on D Avenue, between Fourth & Fifth Streets (in front of the library). Bring the whole family! We hope to see you there!
