(March 1, 2016) – The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that an urgent storm sewer cleaning and investigation will require southbound Interstate Avenue to be closed between N Tillamook and N Thunderbird Way from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2.

Northbound travel will not be affected. Southbound motor vehicle and bicycle traffic will be detoured to the Broadway Bridge ramp, then to Larabee Ave., rejoining N Interstate Ave, south of Broadway.

The work is required to fix what appears to be a collapsed storm sewer main in the area.

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