Traffic signals out of service on SW Naito Parkway

at intersections of SW Clay and SW Market Streets

Portland, OR  --  The traffic signals on SW Naito Parkway at the intersections of SW Clay Street and SW Market Street are not operating this morning. Early this morning, a construction crew working for the Portland Water Bureau cut through an unmarked power line to the signals.

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) quickly dispatched a repair crew and was able to set the signal at SW Clay to flash 4-ways at the intersection. The crew was not able to temporarily repair the signal at SW Market Street, which is currently being controlled by six flaggers. 

PBOT estimates the repairs will be completed by 1:00 pm today.

The Portland Water Bureau is installing a 36-inch diameter steel water supply pipeline on SW Naito Parkway, from SW Clay Street to SW Caruthers Street. The night work -- 9:00 pm to 6:00 am -- on SW Naito will take several weeks to complete.

Motorists and bicyclists are encouraged to find alternate routes.
