(October 31, 2014) - UPDATE: Crews will return to NW Germantown Road this weekend, in what is expected to be the last weekend of repair work needed to restore a retaining wall that supports a section of the road. The closure this weekend will be the same as last weekend's. Please see below for details.
(October 22, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that repair of a retaining wall on NW Germantown Road requires the road’s closure between Lilac Road and Harbor Boulevard for the next two weekends, Saturday, October 25 and Sunday, October 26 and November 1 and 2nd from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Local access will be provided. Travelers wishing to reach NW Skyline Boulevard or Highway 30 should use alternate routes such as NW Newberry Road or NW Cornell Road.
The Transportation Bureau is repairing the retaining wall during the weekends to minimize disruption to travelers. Work began last weekend but the project scope requires additional work for two more weekends. The public is advised to expect delays, travel cautiously, observe the closure and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes.
This work is weather-dependent, and the schedule may change.
