(February 19, 2015) - The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on NW Front Avenue from NW Doane Avenue to NW Kittridge Avenue on Sunday, February 22nd from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m.

The lane closures will allow crews to grind 2.07 lane miles of pavement in preparation for paving at a later date. PBOT crews are working on Sunday to minimize disruption to travelers in an area of the city heavily traveled during weekdays.

PBOT street improvement crews work through the winter, adjusting tasks based on weather conditions. Crews will grind down old asphalt and prepare street surfaces for paving even in cold and rainy conditions. They will return to complete paving during a window of dry weather.

Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project hours. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.

The traveling public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.

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