(January 8, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on the two-block stretch of SE Water Avenue between SE Alder and SE Stark streets. The work takes place from Friday, January 10 through Wednesday, January 15, 9 a.m. through 2 p.m. each weekday.
One traffic lane will remain open at all times. Local access to residences and businesses will be provided.
The lane closures are necessary to allow crews to grind down the existing pavement in preparation for repaving .33 lane miles of the street. If weather permits, crews will complete paving during the week. In case of wet weather, crews will return to the site for paving at a later date.
The public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
