(November 6, 2018) - The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that crane work will close SW Clay Street between SW 5th Avenue and SW 6th Avenue from Wednesday, November 7 at 4 a.m. to Friday, November 9 at 3 p.m.
A detour will be in effect during those times. Traffic will be directed north on SW 4th Avenue to SW Jefferson to SW Broadway, and back to SW Clay. Sidewalks on SW Clay between 5th and 6th Avenue will also be closed during crane work for the safety of the traveling public.
The closure is necessary for a private contractor to use a crane to lift mechanical equipment to the roof of the 1515 Market Square Building.
The traveling public is advised to expect delays during the road closure. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
