(May 8, 2014) - The City ofPortland Bureauof Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements require the closure of the right eastbound lane and bike lane on NE Weidler between NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and NE Grand Avenue from Monday, May 12 through Wednesday, May 14, 2014. The lane closure will be in effect 7 a.m. through 3 p.m. each day.
Bicycle traffic will be detoured one block south to NE Halsey Streetand rejoin NE Weidler Street at NE Sixth Avenue.
The public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all work zone signage, and use alternate routes if possible.
The lane closure is necessary to allow crews to repair the failed road base and stabilize the foundation of the road to prevent potholes and other surface distresses.
This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change.
