(February 13, 2015) - The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that tower crane work will close NE Multnomah St between NE 7th Ave and NE 9th Ave beginning at 6:00 pm Friday, February 13, 2015 and ending approximately 6:00 pm Sunday, February 15, 2015.
A detour will be in effect during those times. Westbound traffic will be directed north on NE 9th Ave to NE Halsey St to NE 7th Ave and back to NE Multnomah St. Eastbound traffic will be detoured south on NE 7th Ave, east on NE Holladay St, and north on NE 9th Ave. Bicycle traffic should follow the same detours as vehicle traffic. Pedestrian traffic should follow the existing construction detours. Local access to businesses and residences will be maintained.
The closure is necessary for the contractor to set up a crane to take down the tower crane on the south side of Multnomah.
The public is advised to travel cautiously in the work zone and to observe detours. Travelers are advised to use alternate routes if possible.
