Installation of Traffic Signal Pole at SE 100th Ave. & SE Powell Blvd. Scheduled for November 20-21; No Lane Closures
Portland Water Bureau contractor Hoffman Construction Company will shut down power to a temporary traffic signal pole.

WHERE: SE 100th Avenue and SE Powell Boulevard

WHEN
: Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 20 and ending at 5:30 a.m. on Friday, November 21

WHY
: The closure will allow crews to install a permanent traffic signal pole to replace an existing temporary pole. The temporary pole allowed crews the room to construct a large vault housed under the westbound lane of SE Powell Boulevard. The vault now houses complex piping connected to the city’s new 25‐million gallon underground reservoir atop Kelly Butte.

WHAT TRAVELERS NEED TO KNOW:

  • There will be NO lane closures.
  • Motorists and bicyclists are asked to use caution in this area.
  • Flaggers will direct both east- and west-bound lanes of traffic safely around the work site.
  • To avoid traffic delays, motorists should use alternate routes.
