On Monday, August 25, construction crews will begin street grinding and paving on SE Division Street between SE 26th and 34th avenues. During construction hours from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, eastbound traffic will be detoured to SE Powell Boulevard at SE 26th Avenue.
Westbound traffic will continue using SE Division but motorists and bicyclists should expect significant delays and avoid the area if possible.
All lanes on SE Division will re-open after construction hours. Grinding and paving between SE 26th and 34th avenues will take about two weeks to complete.
The final phase of grinding and paving on SE Division is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of September 8 between SE 34th Avenue and SE Cesar Chavez Boulevard.
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.
