(January 13, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureauof Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on SE Yamhill Streetbetween SE 69th Avenue and SE 76th Avenue from Tuesday, January 14 through Friday, January 17, 9 a.m. through 2 p.m. each day.
One traffic lane will remain open at all times. Local access to residences and businesses will be provided.
The public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
The lane closures are necessary to allow crews to repave .93 lane miles of the street that was previously ground down.
