(Sept. 9, 2013) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require a lane closure on N Portland Road between N Columbia Boulevard and N Marine Drive from Tuesday, September 10 through Thursday, September 12. The lane closure is in effect 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.
The public is advised to expect delays onN Portland Roadwhile improvements are made. One lane will remain open at all times. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
The closure allows crews to apply a fog seal coat to protect the asphalt and extend the life of the street. Fog seal is a mix of asphalt, water and fine grit that will be sprayed onto the street leaving a dark black appearance. It will remain wet and sticky for up to six hours after application. The public is advised to keep children, pets, bicycles, shoes, and vehicles off the pavement until all barricades and traffic controls are removed.
Local access to residences and businesses will be provided.
This work is weather-dependent, and the schedule may change.
