(April 4, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on W Burnside Street between SW 19th Avenue and SW King Avenue Monday, April 7 through Wednesday, April 9, 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each day.
The lane closures are necessary to allow crews to pave .33 lane miles. This is the second phase of the two phase process. Crews last month had ground down the old asphalt to prepare for paving during a stretch of dry weather. Paving is weather dependent and the schedule may change.
At least one traffic lane in each direction will remain open at all times. Local access to residences and businesses will be provided.
The public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
