Traffic Advisory: Emergency sewer construction closes one lane at N Alberta, affecting travel on the I-5 ramps for up to two months

(September 26) - The City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services advises the traveling public that an emergency sewer construction project involves a lane closure at N Alberta Street at the on-and off-ramps to I-5 beginning this week and lasting for about two months.

Construction will occur during day and some night hours.  One lane will be maintained at all times. The traveling public is required to follow signage and directions of flaggers when present.


People using the I-5 ramps at N Alberta Street should expect delays during construction, share the road and travel with caution.

The work is part of the N Alberta-Missouri Emergency Sewer Project to replace a 66-foot section of pipe that is failing under the intersection of N Alberta Street and N Missouri Avenue. Replacing the sewer will allow for continued dependable sewer service and protect the public and our environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

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.
