Street rebuilding and paving to close lanes on SE 130th Avenue July 7 to Aug. 22
(July 3, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on SE 130th Avenue between SE Stark and SE Lincoln streets from Monday, July 7 through Friday, August 22, 2014.
The lane closures will allow crews to rebuild and repave 3.15 lane miles of street and upgrade four corners to provide curb ramps and ADA access.
Work will require intermittent lane closures during the weekdays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Occasionally, when the work allows for only one lane of travel, the southbound direction on SE 130th Avenue will be closed between SE Market and SE Stark streets. The northbound direction will remain open at all times.
Detour signs will route southbound Stark Street traffic to either SE 122nd or SE 135th avenues. On-street parking on SE 130th Avenue will be restricted during the work day to facilitate construction.
The public is advised to expect delays, travel cautiously, observe traffic signing and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible to avoid congestion.
Local access to residences and businesses will be provided.
