CORRECTED-TRAFFIC ADVISORY: WINTER PAVING TO CLOSE LANES ON SE MORRISON ST FROM 12TH TO 20TH AVENUES JAN 26-30

News Release from Portland Bureau of Transportation

This project will close lanes on SE Morrison Street from 12th to 20th avenues, not 30th Avenue. The original headline misstated the length of the project. We regret the error.

(January 22, 2015) - The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on SE Morrison Street from SE 12th Avenue to SE 20th Avenue from Monday, January 26th through Friday, January 30th , 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each weekday. This project may also include some weekend work.

The lane closures will allow crews to grind 1.11 lane miles of pavement in preparation for paving at a later date.

PBOT street improvement crews work through the winter, adjusting tasks based on weather conditions. Crews will grind down old asphalt and prepare street surfaces for paving even in cold and rainy conditions. They will return to complete paving during a window of dry weather.

Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project hours. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.

Parking restriction barricades will be in place one or two workdays before the start of work. The traveling public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.

This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change

Temporary Fanno Creek Trail Closure

On Monday, February 9, Environmental Services will close a portion of the Fanno Creek Trail at SW 84th Avenue (see map below) for several days in order to locate and measure a section of the Fanno Pressure Sewer. The trail will close again later in the year at the same location to allow work crews to connect the pressure sewer to the new pump station.

When the SW 86th Avenue Pump Station is complete at the end of 2015, it will increase the capacity of the Fanno Basin Sewer System to ensure that the system can handle all wastewater flows during large rain storms. It will protect public health and the health of the Fanno Creek Watershed.

Piedmont Sewer Repair Project Update

Environmental Services is designing a project to repair or replace about 11,000 feet (almost 2 miles) of deteriorating sewer pipes in the Piedmont neighborhood that are on average 90 years old. The project will improve sewer and stormwater infrastructure, increase sewer capacity, and protect public health and the environment.

The project will improve sewer and stormwater infrastructure, increase sewer capacity, and protect public health and the environment.

PROPOSED NIGHT WORK

Since our last notice, we worked with ODOT to plan night work on N Lombard Street at three locations. See the public notice about the proposed night work at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/article/515867.

Accommodating traffic at N Lombard Street and N Mississippi Avenue, N Lombard Street and N Kerby Avenue, and N Lombard Street between N Commercial Avenue and N Vancouver Avenue is more complicated than other locations in the Piedmont project area because Lombard is a state highway and has heavy residential, commercial and bus traffic.

Therefore, the city will apply for a noise variance to enable the contractor to work nights to complete the work as quickly and as safely as possible, avoid longer periods of disruption at these locations, and reduce traffic impacts on the state highway and neighborhood streets. Traffic control provisions will require a minimum one travel lane in each direction to be maintained at all times on N Lombard Street.

Noise Variance Permit

Construction hours will be 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., Monday through Saturday. The work is expected to be completed within four weeks any date between June 2015 and May 2016. Work at each construction location should take about a week. The contractor may use an equipment truck, water jet truck, CCTV truck, vacuum truck, generator, boiler, sewer bypass pumping, an excavator, front-end loader, dump truck, asphalt truck, roller compactor, power tools and lights during overnight construction.

Portland noise code allows construction from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Work after 6:00 p.m. and before 7:00 a.m. and all hours on Sundays requires a noise variance from the Portland Noise Office. Because night work is required to reduce traffic impacts and increase safety on N Lombard Street, the city will apply for a noise variance.

Submit Comments to Portland Noise Office

Your comments regarding the proposed noise variance are valuable and can be submitted to the Portland Noise Office by letter, email or telephone.
