Steam Shove! Begins Excava
tions '"'of $693,110.10 City Job;
Big Crew of Men to Po Work
- Construction of the Lents trunk
sewer, one of the largest, newer proj
ects ever undertaken in Portland, has
been begun by J. F. Shea, the con
tractor. Ground was broken during the
week, when a steam shovel was set to
work on excavations at the east portal
of the tunnel at East 21st street and
Harney avenue. Sellwood.
About 40 men ar on the work, and
next week, or within 10 days, the force
will be increased- to 159. Later on this

corps of men as long as good weather
The second excavating machine will
be placed on the job next Tuesday or
Wednesday.- starting in at East 30th
street and working easterly. The third
excavator will be started at the WiU
lamette river and work toward the
The uncertainties of sewer construc
tion were exemplified Saturday, when,
at the six-foot level at Kast Slst street
and Harney avenue, the workmen
struck' rock. This iedse is approxi
mately 10 feet in depth, and it has
been necessary to blast it out.,- It Is
believed that it extends but a short
Way along the course of the tunnel.
The I.ents sewer contract calls for
tcompletion within 18 months. The fine
record made try J. F. Shea on con;
struction of the Foster road sewer,
for which the Lents trunk will be the
outfall, and on the Oregonian avenue
sewer, just completed, indicates that
the Lents sewer will be finished wey
within the time limit. The contract
priceJs $698,110.10, on a basis of pro
gress payments. The route is from
East-9id street in Lents to East 21st
