(Nov. 13, 2015) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on NE Sandy Boulevard from NE 27th Avenue to NE 29th Avenue starting Monday, Nov. 16, through Friday, Nov. 20, from 7 a.m. through 3 p.m. each work day. On some days, work may extend until 5 p.m.
At least one travel lane in each direction will be open at all times.
The lane closures will allow crews to pave .6 lane miles of NE Sandy Boulevard, part of PBOT’s Back to Basics goal of providing preventive maintenance on 100 lane miles of streets each year.
TriMet will temporarily close some bus stops in the closure area on Sandy Boulevard during work hours. Check trimet.org/alerts for closure information.
Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. People riding bicycles should expect rough surfaces when lanes are ground down before repaving. When riding a bicycle, consider using sidewalks and other routes during work hours.
Lane closures are only in effect during project work hours. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.
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 reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is the steward of the City’s transportation system, and a community partner in shaping a livable city. We plan, build, manage and maintain an effective and safe transportation system that provides access and mobility. www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation
