This Saturday and Sunday (June 14 and June 15), street grinding and paving will close a lane of traffic on SE Division Street between SE 11th and 12th avenues, and on SE 12th Avenue between SE Division and Clinton streets. The contractor will maintain one lane of traffic through the work zone during construction hours, 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. both days. All lanes will re-open after construction hours.
Grinding and paving work will continue on Monday, June 16, on SE Division Street between SE 12th and SE 21st avenues. Construction crews will keep one traffic lane open during work hours, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. All lanes will re-open after construction hours.
Motorists and bicyclists should expect delays during work hours. Paving work is weather-dependent.
This work is part of the Division Streetscape Project. Environmental Services and the Portland Bureau of Transportation are working together to improve the Division Street transportation corridor, repair and replace older sewers, add green infrastructure to manage stormwater and make sewers work more efficiently, and improve watershed health.
