A contractor for the Portland Water Bureau must take one to two more days - Tuesday, May 1 and Wednesday, May 2 - to work in the intersection of SW Naito Parkway at SW Clay Street. The crews are making a difficult connection to an existing water supply pipeline.
Work hours will be from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM to accommodate rush hour traffic.
Several traffic lanes will be closed and the signal light will be disconnected. Flaggers and traffic cones will direct motorists around the work zone. Motorists should expect delays. 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 to replace an aging supply pipeline that is critical to the city’s water system. More construction is scheduled in the intersection of SW Naito Parkway and SW Market Street from May 12 through May 14, 2012.
The second phase of the pipeline project is slated for completion in June 2012.
