Traffic Advisory 05/16/14: Water Project Construction to Impact SE 162nd Avenue at SE Division Street

By Lindsay Wochnick

Official Traffic Advisory

As part of the new water reservoir project in Powell Butte Nature Park, starting on Monday, May 19, 2014, the contractor for the Portland Water Bureau will install a large underground pipe and valve vault in SE 162nd Avenue, immediately north of SE Division Street.

The work will require that the two north-bound lanes of SE 162nd Avenue be closed around the work zone. Traffic will be detoured at SE 148th and 174th Avenues. The east-bound left turn from south-bound SE 162nd Avenue and north-bound right turn lanes from SE Division Street onto SE 162nd Avenue will be closed.

The excavation will be adjacent to the Burgerville, near the northeast corner of SE Division Street at SE 162nd Avenue.

Access to the shopping center will not be impacted during construction. The work zone will be fenced for public safety. Typically, work hours are 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. This work is slated for completion by September 2014.
