Sewer construction starting Tuesday will delay traffic on SE Milwaukie at SE Franklin

Traffic Advisory

August 8, 2016

Beginning Tuesday, August 9, sewer construction will delay traffic on SE Milwaukie Boulevard at SE Franklin Street for up to five days.

At the work zone, crews will maintain one northbound lane and one southbound lane to be shared by motorists and cyclists.

The traveling public should expect delays during construction hours from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day until repairs are complete. All lanes will re-open to traffic after construction hours.

The work is part of the Lower Powell Green Street and Sewer Project to replace aging sewer pipes and construct green street planters to manage stormwater runoff.
