1120 SW 5th Avenue, Room 1000, Portland, OR 97204
Update: This project has been rescheduled to Dec. 27 and is weather dependent
(Dec. 21, 2016) - Lane restrictions will be in effect on SW Boones Ferry Road between SW Arnold Street and SW Colony Drive on Thu
rsday, December 22 between 9 a.m. and approximately 3 p.m. to allow for soil sampling in preparation for an Environmental Services culvert replacement project.
Flaggers will alternate traffic through one lane. The traveling public is advised to expect delays and follow directions from flaggers.
This work is weather dependent and the schedule may change.
The lane closures will allow crews to sample soils in preparation for the SW Boones Ferry Culvert Replacement Project in 2018. That project will remove the undersized and aging culvert below SW Boones Ferry Road and replace it with a restored streambed and a new bridge. The new bridge and restored stream will allow fish passage, and provide a safe, streamside crossing for pedestrians and wildlife.
The project is partially funded by a Metro Nature in the Neighborhoods Grant, and will help protect water quality and our environment. More information may be found at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/BoonesFerry.
The Bureau of Environmental Services works with Portland residents and businesses to protect water quality, public health, and the environment through wastewater collection and treatment, sewer construction and maintenance, stormwater management, and stream and watershed restoration.
