The Portland Noise Office has granted Environmental Services a noise variance to allow overnight construction on several streets with high daytime traffic volumes (see map below). The noise variance does not allow construction crews to use saw cutters, back-up beepers or jackhammers after midnight. There will be lights at construction areas and noise from other construction equipment, vehicles and generators during nighttime construction. A hotline number will be advertised prior to night work and answered by on-site city staff. Work in each location may involve daytime construction to complete some steps.
The map below shows locations of green street planters, sewer pipe construction, and areas where night work will occur. Night shifts may not be consecutive.
This map is not to scale and is meant to show night work at the general location.
