TRAFFIC ADVISORY 2/25/2016: Night Work on SW Macadam Avenue February 29 through March 4; Traffic Impacts Expected

A Portland Water Bureau water main installation project will impact traffic on SW Macadam Avenue near the intersection of SW Nevada Street the evenings of February 29-March 4. To minimize traffic disruptions during busy daytime traffic, work will begin each night at 8 p.m. and be completed by 5 a.m. the next morning, Monday through Friday.

During construction, SW Macadam Avenue will remain open in both directions but traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and some turning movements could be restricted. As with any construction project, safety is our first priority. Travelers are urged to use alternate routes and are reminded to drive slowly, exercise caution, and follow the direction of flaggers when traveling in and around the construction area. 

Crews will do their best to position equipment to reduce noise in the neighborhood. For more information about nighttime work and noise, visit the City of Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement Noise Control Program webpage, call the hotline at 503-823-7350, or e-mail
