Previously, the eastbound lane on SE Division Street between SE 66th and SE 69th avenues was diverted into the center lane around the work zone. Beginning on Monday, March 23, the work zone will be shifted to the center lane, re-opening the eastbound lane for traffic.
Traffic on SE 68th Avenue, between SE Division and Mt. Tabor Park, is open to local access only. Detour signs are posted and sidewalks remain open for pedestrians.
Motorists and bicyclists are urged to use alternate routes, remember to drive slowly, and exercise caution when traveling in and around the construction area. Typically, work hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, with possible occasional Saturday work.
This work is slated for completion in spring 2015.
The new piping is part of the water system improvements required to connect two of the city’s large water conduits to the Westside supply line.
