Official Traffic Advisory
Scheduled to start on Wednesday, March 26, a contractor for the Portland Water Bureau will install a large water utility vault in SE 67th Avenue at SE Division Street. The work will require that one eastbound lane in SE Division Street be closed around the work zone, between SE 66th and SE 68th avenues.
Traffic on SE 67th Avenue, between SE Division and SE Ivon streets, will be open to local access only. Detour signs will be posted and sidewalks will remain open for pedestrians.
The new water vault – a pre-built concrete structure that will house pipe connections – is part of the water system improvements required to connect the city’s new Powell Butte reservoir to the water system. A second vault will be constructed on SE 68th Avenue near SE Division at a later date.
Typically, work hours are 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. This work is slated for completion in 30 to 45 days. Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes.
