Traffic Advisory: Paving on SE Harold Street from SE 111th to 136th avenues begins tomorrow

(July 17, 2019) – Street improvements on SE Harold Street from SE 111th Avenue to SE 136th Avenue start tomorrow, Thursday, July 18 and will continue through August 2 from 7 a.m. through 4 p.m. each business day - and possibly weekends – with periodic lane closures during that time.

The lane closures will allow crews to grind and pave 2.82 lane miles of pavement to create a new, smoother street for travel.

How do crews with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) repave a street? In this short video, PBOT crew members explain how they grind and pave our city streets to create new, smooth roads for you: https://youtu.be/f9tyo3NyLJ0

Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project hours. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.

Please avoid the area if possible and expect delays as we repair this section of road. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane detours and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
