Water main break on West Burnside at 44th Avenue; traffic delays anticipated

Portland, OR  --  A crew from the Portland Water Bureau (PWB) is responding to a water main break on West Burnside at West 44th Avenue. The break of an 8-inch diameter cast iron pipe has not ruptured the street, but water is seeping through cracks in the pavement.

The PWB repair work requires that one east bound lane be closed around the work zone. Traffic will be channeled into two west bound lanes for about 6 to 8 hours. 

Motorists and bicyclists are encouraged to find alternate routes to avoid this work zone.
