(March 5 2015)  – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures in industrial Northwest Portland this weekend.  The lane closures will be in effect on NW Front Avenue from NW 61st Avenue to NW Kittridge Avenue Saturday, March 7and Sunday, March 8, from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. each day.

The Kittridge Bridge will be closed on Sunday from 7 a.m. thru 3 p.m. A detour will be in place on NW 26th Avenue.

The lane closures will allow crews to pave 3.33 lane miles.   The weekend was chosen for this work to minimize disruption to businesses  in this heavily industrial area.

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. Access will be maintained for businesses during the project.

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