(July 15, 2022) Paving work begins Monday, July 18 on N Baltimore Avenue between N Bradford and Lombard streets, as part of the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s (PBOT) ongoing street maintenance program. The work is expected to last approximately two weeks, with work occurring between 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, with some weekend work.
In total, PBOT crews will grind down and repave approximately 0.64 lane miles of pavement.
The traveling public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. Parking will be restricted 1-2 days before crews begin and throughout the repairs. Pedestrian access will remain open for the duration of construction.
We ask the public to travel slowly and cautiously in our work zones, observe all detours and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
