Paving will impact traffic on Northwest
hill roads August 18 - 28
Several roads in the rural hills northwest of Portland will be paved on weekdays from August 18 - 28. The work will require one lane to be closed. Flaggers and a pilot vehicle will be used to direct two-way traffic on the remaining open lane. Travelers should expect delays and use alternate routes if possible.
The paving schedule, weather permitting, is:
- NW Newberry Road (from US30 to County line): August 18 and 20
- NW Kaiser Road (full length): August 19 and 21
- NW Skyline Boulevard (from NW Macnamee to NW Cornelius Pass Road) and NW Brooks Road (full length): August 25 and 26
The roads will receive a three-stage chip seal treatment, which is a low-cost paving method well suited to rural roads. A final fog seal layer will be applied to the roads during the week of August 25, weather permitting.
Multnomah County maintains these roads and 300 miles of roads and bridges. For more information, visit www.multco.us/roads.
