Portland Bureau of Transportation
Four-day street closure slated next week for NE Wasco St between 81st to 82nd avenues
(PORTLAND, Ore.) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require a road closure on NE Wasco Street between NE 81st and NE 82nd avenues from Tuesday, July 9 through Friday, July 12, all hours and all days. The public is advised to expect delays in the area.
This closure is necessary to remove and replace both the base and the surface layers of NE Wasco Street to stabilize the foundation of the road and prevent potholes and other surface distresses.
A detour will be in effect to accomplish this work. Eastbound traffic will be detoured to NE Halsey street, east over the Halsey overpass to NE Jonesmore St. then back to 82nd Ave. West bound traffic will be detoured west on NE Multnomah St. then north on 81st Ave. and back to 81st and Wasco. We ask the public to travel cautiously and observe detour directions.
Local access to residences and businesses will be provided. This work is weather-dependent, and the schedule may change.
