(October 17, 2013) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that NW Cornell Road will be closed overnight Friday, October 18 beginning at 8 p.m. The road is scheduled to reopen Saturday, October 19 at 6 a.m.

The closure applies to all travelers, including people traveling by bicycle and foot. Local access will be provided and flaggers will be present to reroute traffic.
Detour signs and flaggers will be stationed on the east end of the closure at NW 25th Avenue and NW Lovejoy Street to detour traffic to NW Burnside Street. On the west end, detour signs and flaggers will be present at NW Skyline Boulevard and NW Cornell Road.
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.
