(March 19, 2015)  – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on NW Northrup Street from NW 14th Avenue to NW 23rd Avenue Monday, March 23 through Friday, April 3, 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each work day.

Crews are improving 1.37 lane miles of the street, grinding down old asphalt and preparing the street for repaving at a later date when weather permits. 

Parking will be removed during the project from NW 14th to 16th avenues to make way for work crews and through traffic.  The Portland Streetcar will operate as usual.

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 or 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
