Portland Water Bureau crews are responding to a water main break near the freeway onramp near North Alberta Street to the I-5 South. The area also serves as the Swan Island exit from Alberta Street onto North Going Street (Southbound) for trucks and other traffic.
In order to assess and repair the damaged water pipe, crews must shut down the North Going Street (Southbound) until approximately 3 p.m. today; the Alberta freeway onramp remains open.
The main is an 8-inch cast iron pipe from 1911. Thirteen homes on North Minnesota Avenue may be out of service while the main is repaired.
Motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are urged to use caution when passing the area.
