One day closure, detours slated tomorrow for paving of NE 33rd Avenue
ramps over NE Columbia Blvd
(June 2, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require ramp closures on NE 33rd Avenue at NE Columbia Boulevard tomorrow, June 3, 2014. All three ramps will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for one day only.
Bicycle and vehicle detours will be in effect. This closure will allow crews to pave .65 lane miles.
Vehicle traffic will be detoured to NE 21st Avenue from NE Columbia Boulevard.
Bicycle traffic going northbound will be detoured west on N Dekum Street to 15th Avenue and then will be asked to follow detour signs to cross NE Lombard Street and NE Columbia Boulevard. The southbound detour will follow the same route in reverse.
To avoid busy streets, the bicycle detour is fairly lengthy. Alternate routes are advised.
The public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all directions, and use alternate routes if possible.
