1120 SW Fifth Ave, Suite 800, Portland, OR 97204
(September 3, 2014) - The Going Street Neighborhood Greenway, one of the most popular bike routes in the city, will get a fresh coat of sealant this month to improve the roadway and extend the life of the pavement for years to come.
Beginning Sept. 8 and continuing for up approximately 5 days, N & NE Going Street will be closed in three to four block sections so crews can fog seal the street from N Vancouver to Cesar Chavez Blvd. Please note:
Fog seal is a coating of asphalt, recycled tire rubber, and grit blended locally in Portland. It is a cost-effective technique to maintain low-traffic streets, extending the life of the pavement and preventing more costly and lengthy repairs later.
This preventive maintenance project is part of Mayor Charlie Hales’ and Commissioner Steve Novick’s Back to Basics initiative to repair and improve at least 100 miles of streets during this fiscal year. The Back to Basics initiative prioritizes maintenance of the city's Neighborhood Greenway network of streets, like Going, that are optimized for bicycling and walking.
Please help us improve Going Street for you and other travelers by staying off the pavement while it’s being sealed.
