At 3:00 pm today, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) returned to operation the traffic signals on SW Naito Parkway at the intersection of SW Harrison Street. The PBOT crew temporarily relocated the signals’ electrical conduit overhead, out of the path of the Portland Water Bureau’s new water supply pipeline, now under construction.
All of the signal lights’ functions will operate on a time-cycle (or recall). The sensors that identify a vehicle in the LEFT turn lanes are disabled. Motorists will have to wait until the signal goes through a full cycle before the light changes. The pedestrian “Cross” buttons are also temporarily turned off. The signal will automatically allow pedestrians to crossing during the signal cycle. Both of these temporary measures may cause some traffic delays.
The PBOT crew will return to the site on Friday, February 24, 2012, to place the electrical conduit back underground once the large sections of water supply pipeline at this location are installed.
The traveling public should follow signs, use caution in work zones and consider alternate routes to avoid delays.
