TRAFFIC ADVISORY 12/02/13: Broken Water Main Under Repair on NE 92nd Avenue, Between NE Hill Way and NE Russell Place

By Lindsay Wochnick

A Portland Water Bureau maintenance crew is on the scene of a main break on NE 92nd Avenue, between NE Hill Way and NE Russell Place. 

Around 12:00 noon, water was reported seeping up through the pavement. The cracked 62-year old 8-inch cast iron pipe caused water to flow into the street and nearby catch basins.

At this time, water to the broken pipe has been shut off. About 25 houses may temporarily be out of water during the work.

No flooding damage has been reported.

Traffic on NE 92nd Avenue, a residential street, will be flagged around the work zone. Crews will be onsite until work is completed, likely into the evening hours.
