April 3, 2018 – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on SW Jefferson Street from SW Park Avenue to SW 20th Avenue through April 14, 7 a.m. to as late as 4 p.m. each work day and may also include Saturday and Sunday.
The lane closures will allow crews to repave 2.62 lane miles of pavement. Following the repaving, PBOT crews will also update the striping on SW Jefferson to reduce conflicts between buses and people driving and biking.
Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project 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.
