July 11, 2013
The culvert replacement project that was scheduled to start on July 11 on NE 33rd Drive has been postponed until Monday, July 15, 2013.
Beginning Monday, construction will close NE 33rd Drive where it crosses Buffalo Slough just north of NE Columbia Boulevard. The street will be closed all days and all hours to motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians for up to five months.
Detour signs will direct traffic to NE Argyle Street and NE Riverside Way to access the NE 21st Avenue bridge across the slough.
Buffalo Slough is a southern branch of the Columbia Slough. The project will replace a culvert that is too high to allow year-round flow. The new culvert will improve water quality and fish habitat.
