Traffic Advisory: Winter paving to close lanes on SE Belmont from SE 12th Ave to SE Grand Ave from Feb.3 to Feb. 6

(February 2, 2015)  – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on SE Belmont Street from SE 12th Avenue to SE Grand Avenue from Tuesday, February 3rd through Friday, February 6th, 7 a.m. through 3 p.m. each weekday. This project may also include some weekend work.

 Two lanes will remain open during the afternoon rush hour. Parking will be removed during work hours.

 The lane closures and parking removal will allow crews to grind 1.16 lane miles of pavement in preparation for paving at a later date. 

 PBOT street improvement crews work through the winter, adjusting tasks based on weather conditions. Crews will grind down old asphalt and prepare street surfaces for paving even in cold and rainy conditions. They will return to complete paving during a window of dry weather.

 Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project hours. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.

 The traveling public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.

 This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change
