Sewer construction starting Monday, May 2, 2016 will restrict traffic to local access only on SE Hawthorne Boulevard from SE Cesar Chavez Boulevard to SE 50th Avenue, and on SE 50th from SE Hawthorne Boulevard to SE Division Street.
Traffic restrictions will be in place all hours and all days for up to three weeks. Flaggers will move local traffic through work zones in both directions using a single lane.
Construction will cause traffic delays. Motorists and bicyclists who don’t need local access should use alternate routes.
The work is part of the Hawthorne Green Street and Sewer Project to replace sewer pipes and construct green street planters to manage stormwater runoff.
