Traffic Advisory: Street improvements to close lanes on SE Tacoma St, from SE 6th Ave to SE 17th Ave, July 28-31

(July 27, 2016) – The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on SE Tacoma Street from SE 6th Avenue to SE 17th Avenue on Thursday, July 28, through Sunday, July 31, from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each day.

The lane closures will allow crews to repave 2.2 lane miles of street surface, following recent work to grind off the top layer of asphalt. Both grinding and repaving are being coordinated with the Sellwood Bridge closures to reduce disruption to the traveling public.

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 reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.

This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change.
