(November 17, 2014) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on NE 28th Avenue from NE Glisan Street to NE Broadway from Tuesday, November 18 through Monday, December 1st, 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each weekday. This project may also include some weekend work.
The lane closures will allow crews to grind 1.39 lane miles of pavement in preparation for paving at a later date.
PBOT street improvement crews work through the winter, adjusting tasks based on weather conditions. During the winter season, PBOT street improvement crews can grind down old asphalt and prepare street surfaces for paving even in cold and rainy conditions. They will return to the street to complete paving when dry conditions prevail.
Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project hours.
During the project, 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.
