(March 2, 2020) – The City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services advises the traveling public to expect lane closures on NE Broadway Street between NE 24th and NE 25th avenues beginning March 3 and continuing through the end of March.
The lane closures will occur on both eastbound and westbound lanes while workers extend the sewer system in that area. At least two lanes of the four-lane road will be open at all times. Lane closures may occur any time during work hours, which are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and Saturdays as needed.
The closures will allow Environmental Services contract crews to extend the public sewer system on NE Broadway between 24th and 25th. This work is part of the City’s ongoing effort to provide property owners a way to directly and independently connect to the public sewer system. The project also will help protect public health, property, and the environment by increasing the capacity of the public sewer system.
The public is advised to travel cautiously, expect some delays, observe directions of reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes when possible.

The Bureau of Environmental Services provides city residents with programs to protect water quality and public health, including wastewater collection and treatment, sewer construction and maintenance, stormwater management, and stream and watershed restoration.
