(Aug. 18, 2015) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that bridge resurfacing will require lane closures on SE Foster Road Bridge between SE 145th Avenue and Barbara Welch Road on Saturday, Aug. 22 and Sunday, Aug. 23, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The public is advised to expect delays, travel cautiously, observe all lane closures, use detours and alternate routes if possible.

For preventative maintenance, the bridge deck will be resurfaced with an overlay product to prevent water from penetrating into the bridge structure.

Scheduled maintenance will require two days to complete.  Detours will be set up to keep traffic flowing during scheduled work times.

Traffic traveling eastbound on SE Foster Road will be detoured north to SE 136th Avenue and eastbound on SE Powell Boulevard to SE Jenne Road.  Traffic traveling westbound on SE Foster Road will be detoured to SE Jenne Lane to SE Powell Boulevard, to SE 136th, to SE Foster Road. SE Foster Road will be closed just west of SE Barbara Welch Road.

Local access will be provided to residences on SE Foster Rd between SE 136th and 145th.
