TRAFFIC ADVISORY 05/22/13: Repairs to Elk Fountain Closes One Traffic Lane on SW Main Street

By Lindsay Wochnick 0 Comments

Elk Fountain repairs May 2013

UPDATE: 5/30/2013

Due to the rainy weather, contractors were not able to finish the repairs to the base of the Elk Fountain. Work is scheduled to resume the week of June 10th. Another traffic advisory will be posted shortly before the work begins.

A contractor is currently making repairs to the Elk Fountain, located on SW Main Street, between SW 3rd and SW 4th avenues in downtown Portland. SW Main Street is a one-way, two lane street with traffic traveling westbound. 

Traffic is reduced to one lane around the work zone through Friday, May 24, 2013.  Work hours are 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

The Water Bureau crew is repairing minor damage to the historic fountain caused by two past incidents involving automobile collisions.

Motorists and bicyclists are encouraged to take alternate routes.
