Traffic Advisory Update
A culvert replacement project will close NE 33rd Drive to all traffic beginning Monday, July 15 where 33rd Drive 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.
The city’s contractor had originally planned to close the street on July 11 and has postponed the closure until next Monday.
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.
