Street improvements on NE Glisan Street close NE 24th Avenue beginning April 29
(PORTLAND, Ore.) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements on NE Glisan Street will require a road closure on NE 24th Avenue between NE Glisan Street and NE Sandy Boulevard beginning 7 a.m. on Monday, April 29, through 5 p.m. on Friday, May 10, all hours and all days. The public is advised to expect delays on NE Glisan Street between NE 22nd Avenue and NE 26th Avenue while repairs are made. The public is also advised to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
This closure is necessary to remove and replace both the base and the surface layers of sections of NE Glisan Street to stabilize the foundation of the road and prevent potholes and other surface distress.
A detour will be in effect to accomplish this work. Northbound traffic on NE 24th Avenue will be detoured onto NE Glisan Avenue east to NE 28th Avenue then north to NE Sandy Boulevard. Southbound traffic on NE 24th Avenue will be detoured onto NE Sandy Boulevard east to NE 28th Avenue, south to NE Everett Street, then east to NE 26th Avenue.
Local access to residences and businesses will be provided.
This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change.
