Traffic Advisory: Sewer cleaning to close one lane on NW Front Avenue at NW Kittridge Avenue July 8 for four weeks
UPDATE (July 23, 2019) - this project has been extended through at least the end of July.
(July 3, 2019) - The City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services advises the traveling public that a sewer cleaning project will reduce NW Front Avenue to one lane at NW Kittridge Avenue and extending part way to NW Doane Avenue for approximately three weeks beginning on July 8th.
Sewer maintenance crews will be at work 24 hours a day. The lane closures will be in effect all days and nights, including weekends.
One lane will be maintained at all times and flaggers will be on site to direct traffic. The traveling public is required to follow signage and directions of flaggers when present.
People traveling by motor vehicle or bicycle should expect delays during construction. Share the road and travel with caution.
The closure will allow sewer maintenance crews to clean large diameter sewer main pipes in this section of industrial Portland. By working 24 hours a day, Environmental Services aims to both limit impacts to traffic and complete needed maintenance work more quickly.
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.
