The intersection of Southwest Broadway Drive, Davenport Street and Davenport Court will be closed in all directions from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22, or until construction is complete. Portland Water Bureau crews will be working in the intersection to install a new water pressure regulator to ensure safe and reliable water for the area.
Southwest Broadway Drive from 9th Avenue to Sherwood Drive will have local access restrictions, meaning only travelers within the restricted area will be allowed access. Residents on Southwest Davenport Court will be directed in and out of the construction site, but there will be delays.
This work will be performed because the existing water pressure regulator is at the end of its productive life and must be replaced to ensure safe and reliable water in the future. The new regulator will be installed in Southwest Davenport Street to reduce future traffic conflicts at this intersection.
