(January 9, 2015) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that crews will pave NE 28th Avenue from NE Glisan Street to NE Broadway from Monday, January 12th through Wednesday January 14th, 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each weekday.
Lane closures will be in effect during those times to allow crews to pave 1.39 lane miles. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.
These street improvements are part of the Transportation Bureau’s winter paving program in which crews adjust tasks based on weather conditions instead of halting operations until dry weather. Crews will grind down old asphalt and prepare street surfaces for paving even in cold and rainy conditions. They will return to complete paving during a window of dry weather.
This stretch of NE 28th Avenue was prepared for resurfacing in mid-November. With the expected stretch of dry weather next week, crews will complete the project next week. The street was open for travel between the two phases of the project.
Parking restriction barricades will be in place one or two workdays before the start of work. The traveling 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.
