Traffic Advisory: Upcoming Nighttime Construction Work on SW Naito Parkway
Construction of a 36-inch steel water transmission pipe will start tonight, Tuesday January 3, 2012 at 9:00 PM at the intersection of SW Naito and Clay Street in downtown Portland. The work is being done by a contractor for the Portland Water Bureau.
Work hours will be from 9:00 PM - 6:00 AM Sunday night through Friday morning for the next several weeks. Construction will start at SW Clay Street and proceed southbound along SW Naito Parkway.
Flaggers and traffic cones will direct motorists around the work zone. Some lane closures and delays should be expected. Motorists and bicyclists are encouraged to find alternate routes to avoid this work zone.
This work is part of the second phase of the Portland Water Bureau's Westside Header Project that will install another 5,000-feet of steel water mains to replace an existing critical but aging supply pipeline. Construction work on SW Naito Parkway began in September and is estimated to be completed by spring of 2012.
