(Nov. 8, 2018) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that the lane closures for street improvements on SW Vermont Street from SW 55th Ave to SW 45th Ave will continue through Sunday, November 11, during all hours and all days, if weather permits.
The lane closures will allow crews to grind and pave the street as part of the Fixing Our Streets SW Vermont Street paving project. Final paving will be on November 10th and November 11th from SW 52nd Avenue to SW 45th Avenue if the weather holds dry based on forecast model.
People traveling east on SW Vermont from SW Oleson Road will be detoured to SW Shattuck Road, then routed to SW Cameron Road from SW Shattuck Rd and then finally routed towards SW 45th Ave down back to SW Vermont, for all hours and all days. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project. Other travel alternatives include SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and SW Garden Home Road to SW Multnomah Boulevard.
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.
