1120 SW Fifth Ave, Suite 800, Portland, OR 97204
(June 17, 2015) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that safety improvements for a Johnson Creek bridge will require the closure of SE 110/112th Avenue between SE Brookside Dr and SE Foster Road on Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. This closure also will be in effect the following weekend, with the possibility that a third weekend of work may be needed.
Travelers along 112th Avenue will be detoured via SE Flavel Street and SE 122nd Avenue. The public is advised to expect delays and travel with care.
PBOT crews are improving the guardrail on the approach to the Johnson Creek bridge, which has been the scene of two fatalities in recent years. http://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/article/522791
The safety improvements include replacing and extending the guardrail to protect motorists traveling over the bridge and pedestrians on the sidewalk approaching the bridge. Additional concrete barriers will be installed adjacent to the foot bridge. Damaged fencing also will be replaced.
Local access will be provided to residences on SE Brookside Drive. This work is weather-dependent, and the schedule may change.
