(PORTLAND, Ore.) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on N Fremont Street between N Mississippi and N Williams avenues from Wednesday, June 19 through Tuesday, June 25, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
The public is advised to expect delays, travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
The lane closures are necessary to grind down the existing pavement and repave 1.18 lane miles of the street. This is the first of two phases.
One eastbound traffic lane will remain open at all times. Local access to residences and businesses will be provided. Westbound traffic will be detoured south to N Vancouver Avenue, west onto N Russell Street and then north onto N Mississippi Avenue.
This work is weather dependent, and the schedule may change.
