STREET CLOSURE: SW Broadway Drive between SW Davenport and SW Hoffman streets

Update February 10, 2011:

We expect water trench paving, guardrail replacement, and shoulder restoration to take another two weeks (+/-), weather being one factor.



SW Broadway Drive is closed with local access only between SW Davenport and SW Hoffman streets for repairs resulting from a water main break that occurred on December 8, 2010. The City has placed road closure signs and variable message boards adjacent to SW Vista (above SW Davenport) at the upper end of SW Broadway Dr and between SW Lincoln and SW Grant (below SW Hoffman) at the lower end of SW Broadway Dr.

The Portland Water and Transportation bureaus are working collaboratively to resolve the problem and reopen the street as soon as possible. It is expected that allowing for the underlying soil to dry out from the water leak, core testing, excavation, and rebuilding the street locally, Broadway Drive should be reopened by mid-February, weather permitting.

Several NO PARKING areas have been established on alternate routes in the area to accommodate emergency response vehicles that otherwise could not make the turns on some of the narrow and winding roads.
