Overnight sewer construction that begins Monday night, July 7 will close traffic lanes around the intersection of NE Broadway and NE 33rd Avenue. Work hours will be 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Construction at the intersection will last for about two weeks.
The construction will detour traffic to I-84 westbound and to 33rd Avenue southbound when all southbound travel lanes on NE 33rd are closed at Broadway. Drivers and bicyclists should expect delays during construction hours.
The work is part of the Grant Park Sewer Repair Project to replace or repair about 11,500 feet of public sewer pipes that are between 89 and 104 years old and failing due to age.
