Construction Moratorium - Holiday Season and Rose Festival

Moratorium Map 

Current Year's Dates Are:

Rose Festival Moratorium - May 30th, 2015 through June 9, 2015

Holiday Moratorium - November 21st, 2015 through January 2nd, 2016

Each year, during the Rose Festival activities and again during the holiday season Portland's Bureau of Transportation limits routine work that requires cutting open, closing, or blocking of any roadway, on street parking or sidewalk in the core area and principle streets as identified on the moratorium map.

Work in the sidewalk or roadway necessitated by extreme conditions must be approved by the Bureau of Transportation and in most cases reviewed by the moratorium committee members before authorization by permit or agreement will be issued.

All requests must be submitted using the attached form click here for Moratorium Exemption Request Form.  Please e-mail to the Moratorium Committee, Attention: Faith Winegarden at
