Street grinding and paving is slowing traffic this week on SE Division Street between SE 12th and 21st avenues. The contractor maintains one lane of traffic through the work zone during construction hours but motorists and bicyclists should expect significant delays and avoid the area if possible.
Construction hours are 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. All lanes re-open after construction hours. The work on SE Division from 12th to 21st is expected to last until early next week. Then the paving crew will start work between SE 21st and SE 26th avenues.
This work is part of the Division Streetscape Project (www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/streetscape). Environmental Services and the Portland Bureau of Transportation are working together to improve the Division Street transportation corridor, repair and replace older sewers, add green infrastructure to manage stormwater and make sewers work more efficiently, and improve watershed health.
