Work that began today to prepare SW Multnomah Boulevard for repaving between SW 45th and SW 31st avenues is slowing traffic in both directions on SW Multnomah. Work hours are 6:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Motorists should expect delays during construction. Both lanes are open after work hours.
The contractor began grinding off existing pavement today. The work is closing one lane of SW Multnomah at SW 45th. Flaggers are directing traffic through the intersection in a single lane in alternating directions. Construction crews are working east to SW 31st Avenue. Pavement grinding will last through this Friday.
The same traffic restrictions will be in place starting next Monday when paving begins. Paving should take five days to complete.
The pavement restoration is the final phase of a project to replace the Multnomah Boulevard section of the Fanno Pressure Sewer.
