August 7, 2013
Beginning Thursday, August 8, 2013, Environmental Services will close NE Wistaria Drive between NE Cesar Chavez Boulevard and NE 43rd Avenue during sewer construction hours. Construction hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The street will close during construction hours for up to three weeks.
The project contractor encountered unstable soil during excavation for a sewer construction project. The emergency road closure is a safety precaution to protect the pubic and construction workers. The road will be closed to vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians during work hours. Construction crews will secure the trench at the end of each shift and the road will re-open during non-work hours.
TriMet has diverted buses around the work area. Information about changes to schedules and bus routes is available at www.trimet.org.
