(September 8, 2017) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements and railroad track replacement will require the closure of North Columbia Boulevard between North Fiske Avenue and North Chautauqua Boulevard on Tuesday, September 12 through Friday, September 22, all hours and all days.
The lane closures will allow crews to replace the railroad tracks and repave the road at the railroad crossing.
Eastside access will be maintained for businesses during the project. A detour will be in place for truck traffic using North Portland Road and North Vancouver Way to Marine Drive.
The traveling 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 reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change.
