(February 11, 2015) The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements require the closure of the right eastbound lane and bus stop on SE Belmont Street between SE Cesar Chavez Blvd and SE 40th Avenue from Tuesday, February 17 through February 24, 2015.   The lane closure will be in effect all hours and all days.

On street parking will be removed from both the north and south sides of SE Belmont Street between SE Cesar Chavez Blvd and SE 40th Avenue. The left turn lane from west bound SE Belmont Street to SE Cesar Chavez Blvd will also be closed.  The parking removal and lane closure will allow east and west bound traffic to continue to travel on SE Belmont Street while repairs are made.

The lane shift is necessary to allow crews to repair the failed road base and stabilize the foundation of the road to prevent potholes and other surface distresses.   

The public is advised to expect delays. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all work zone signage, and use alternate routes if possible.

 This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change.
