(March 30, 2016) -- The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that installation of a slide protection fence above an existing retaining wall on NW Cornell Road will require one lane to be closed today and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The work will occur between the tunnels on NW Cornell Road, east of the Audubon Society of Portland, 5151 NW Cornell Road. Flaggers will direct eastbound and westbound travelers to alternate using a single lane.

People driving cars should expect delays or use alternative routes.

We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by reader boards and flaggers.

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