Both Westbound Lanes of SE Powell Boulevard Shut Down for Water Main Repairs

By Teresa Black

Portland Water Bureau crews are responding to a water main break at the 7400 block of SE Powell Boulevard this evening. In order to assess and repair the damaged water pipe, crews must shut down approximately 200 feet of both westbound lanes of SE Powell Boulevard. The eastbound lanes will be adjusted so that there is one lane going each direction on SE Powell Boulevard while repairs are being made.

The westbound Trimet stop on SE Powell Boulevard at SE 75Avenue is closed. Trimet riders should use the stops at SE 71st or SE 79th avenues.

The size, age and material of the broken water main is unknown at this time, and no customers are out of service at this time.

 Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians are urged to use caution when driving past the construction zone.
