(May 31, 2018) – The City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services advises the traveling public that sewer construction will require nighttime closures of the northbound off-ramp at SE McLoughlin Boulevard and SE Powell Boulevard for up to seven nights beginning June 4. Night construction hours are from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
A detour will be set up to guide travelers to eastbound SE Powell Boulevard.
The traveling public is advised to expect some delays, to travel cautiously and to observe the traffic control signage.
Work is being scheduled at night to minimize impacts on travel. The overnight closures will allow crews to repair about 100 feet of pipe under the off-ramp.
The work is part of the Lower Powell Green Street and Sewer Project to protect water quality, public health, and our environment. For additional information, including project updates and maps, visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/Lowerpowell .
