Traffic Advisory

September 8, 2016 

Beginning early this morning, September 8, an urgent public sewer repair has closed lanes on NE Halsey Street between NE 42nd and 43rd avenues. While approved night work continues at this location, it is necessary to extend work into daytime hours at least through noon today to complete the emergency repair. 

NE Halsey Street will be reduced to one lane with flaggers allowing one direction of travel at a time. The I-84 off-ramp at NE 42nd Avenue will also be reduced to one lane with flaggers assisting traffic entering 42nd. 

The traveling public is advised to expect delays, travel cautiously in the area, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
