1120 SW Fifth Ave, Suite 600, Portland, OR 97204
The Portland Water Bureau reports that one lane of traffic on NW Skyline Boulevard at NW Hawkins Boulevard must be closed to make emergency repairs to a telephone conduit that was damaged during pipe excavation work.
Flaggers will direct traffic into one lane around the 50 foot long work zone. The repair work is estimated to take about four to six hours to complete.
Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes to avoid delays.
It’s unknown at this time if the telephone conduit was active, but repairs are still being made. No phone service outage has yet to be reported.
A contractor for the Portland Water Bureau is constructing a 1.3 million gallon underground reservoir in the area of the conduit break. The project also requires some water pipe installation work in both NW Skyline Boulevard and NW Hawkins Boulevard.
