(Oct. 25, 2019) The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) advises that PBOT-contracted crews will be grinding down the southbound lane on N Denver Avenue between Lombard and Watts streets on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to prepare it for paving.
Work will begin at 8 a.m. and will be completed by 3 p.m. Northbound traffic be unaffected, while southbound traffic will follow the detour currently in place at N Interstate Avenue. Nearby residents can expect construction noise and people driving can expect delays on N Denver Avenue between the hours of 8 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Sidewalks will remain open for pedestrians and access to driveways will be maintained for the duration of the work. Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. PBOT-contracted crews will continue to complete ADA curb ramp improvements and anticipate completing paving work ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, weather permitting.
We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane detours and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible. Learn what you can expect in our work zones and how you can help everyone stay safe by watching this video: https://youtu.be/lx3RkJjkjSE
PBOT greatly appreciates the patience and understanding of nearby residents and businesses as we work to wrap up this construction project.
