Traffic Advisory: SW 4th Avenue to close to all motorized traffic Friday, Sept. 19

(Sept. 18, 2014) -- The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that Portland Streetcar construction work will close SW 4th Avenue at Harrison to all motorized traffic beginning at 9:00 AM on Friday, Sept. 19.  SW 4th Avenue will remain closed through the weekend and will reopen by 6:00 AM on Monday, Sept. 22.    

The east sidewalk on SW 4th Avenue will remain open and access will be maintained to businesses and residences in the area.

This closure is necessary to complete the connections to the new second track on SW 4thAvenue at SW Harrison Street near Portland State University to allow for the completed Loop operations beginning Sept. 12, 2015 with the opening of the new Tilikum Crossing Transit Bridge. The completed loop service will bring more frequent service -- with streetcars coming about every 7 minutes -- between South Waterfront and the Pearl District.

The traveling public is asked to follow signs and use caution in work zones.
