(August 19, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on SE 52nd Avenue between SE Powell Boulevard and SE Division Street on Wednesday, August 20 and Thursday, August 21, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
The lane closures are necessary to allow crews to pave 1.68 lane miles. When paving is complete, SE 52nd Avenue will be restriped to add a six-foot bicycle lane on either side of the street. More information on the ‘50s Bikeway Project may be found here: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/53345
While crews are working, one traffic lane will remain open at all times. Local access to residences and businesses will be provided.
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.
