Stormwater pipe repairs close lanes in the Central Eastside through October

Traffic Advisory

August 23, 2016

Beginning today, August 23, an urgent stormwater pipe repair will close lanes in the Central Eastside District all hours and all days through October: 

  • Northbound lane on SE Water Avenue between SE Clay Street and SE Hawthorne Boulevard, and
  • Westbound lane on SE Clay Street between SE 2nd Avenue and SE Water Avenue.

Local access only will be provided. Signed detours will direct the traveling public around the construction zone. The public is advised to travel cautiously in the area.

While the sidewalk to the Eastbank Esplanade at the intersection SE Clay Street and SE Water Avenue will remain open, it will be narrowed to accommodate construction equipment. Pedestrians and cyclists are advised to observe signed restrictions and share the sidewalk safely.

For information, contact Cheryl Kuck, 503-823-7898,
