Traffic Advisory: Street improvements to close lanes on N Willamette Blvd from N Portsmouth to N Woolsey avenues July 7 to 18
(July 2, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures of N Willamette Boulevard from N Portsmouth Avenue to N Woolsey Avenue for two weeks from Monday, July 7 through Friday, July 18, 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each weekday.
These lane closures will allow crews to grind and pave 2.36 lane miles.
Parking restriction barricades will be in place one or two workdays before the start of work.
Access will be maintained for businesses and residents. The public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change.
