Update for September 27, 2012

N. Denver Ave Roadway Repairs Update

Construction crews will begin pavement repairs to N. Denver Avenue on Monday, October 8. The work was originally planned to begin on Monday, October 1, but was delayed one week to allow time to process contract documents.

Crews will replace a crosswalk at the N. Schofield intersection and fix several large cracks in the block between N. Watts and N. Schofield. In addition, crews will replace bike lane striping between N. Watts and N. Willis and add crosswalk markings at N. Schofield and N. McClellan.

Working hours will typically be Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

One-Block Detour Starts Monday, October 8th     

The concrete paving requires closing one block of N. Denver Avenue and detouring traffic between N. Schofield and N. Watts. Sidewalks will remain open. The closure is expected to continue through the first week of November. (Rain or unforeseen circumstances could delay the paving work and the timing of reopening the road.)

Signed detours will reroute traffic to parallel side streets. Some on-street parking along the detour route will be removed temporarily to accommodate turns and two lanes of traffic in each direction.

  • Northbound Detour: Traffic will be detoured from N. Denver to east on N. Watts, north on N. Fenwick, and west on N. Schofield.
  • Southbound Detour: Traffic will be detoured from N. Denver to west on N. Schofield, south on N. Brandon, and east on N. Watts.
  • N. Denver Freight Access: Denver will be closed to freight trucks over 50 feet during the detour. Signs on N. Lombard and N. Interstate will advise truck drivers of the closure.
  • TriMet Detour: TriMet #4 Division/Fessenden will detour via N. Watts, N. Fenwick and N. Kilpatrick. For more information, visit
