Traffic Advisory: Streetcar work to close one block of SW Montgomery between SW Fourth and Fifth avenues Aug. 11 to Sept. 28

(August 8, 2014) – The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that Portland Streetcar construction work will require a complete closure of SW Montgomery Street from SW Fourth to Fifth avenues from Monday, August 11 through September 28, 2014.

In addition, periodic lane closures will be required on SW Fourth Avenue between SW Harrison and Mill streets.

Construction will be complete before classes resume at nearby Portland State University on September 29.

The closures will allow construction of a second streetcar track that will extend service over the Tilikum Crossing Transit Bridge beginning in September 2015. 

The traveling public is asked to follow signs and use caution in work zones.
