Feb. 8, 2016: WINTER PAVING UPDATE: Expect intermittent lane closures on East Burnside 7 a.m. through 5 p.m., NE 90th Ave to NE 94th Ave., Tuesday Feb. 9 through Thursday Feb. 11 as PBOT crews repave the road surface, which was ground earlier this winter. The work is weather dependent and the schedule may change.
(Nov. 18, 2015) – The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on East Burnside Street from NE 90th Avenue to NE 94th Avenue starting Thursday, Nov. 19, through Friday, Nov. 20, from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each work day to complete a first phase of asphalt removal.
At a later date, dependent on the weather, PBOT crews will return to repave the road surface.
At least one travel lane will be open at all times. The lane closures will allow crews to pave .85 lane miles of E Burnside Street, part of PBOT’s Back to Basics goal of providing preventive maintenance on 100 lane miles of streets each year.
Check trimet.org/alerts for information about bus service during the work period.
Lane closures are only in effect during project work hours. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.
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.
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.
