West Burnside

(Dec. 24, 2017) The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that winter weather conditions have prompted the bureau to activate a snow zone, requiring snow chains or traction tires for all vehicles, on West Burnside. Crews changed signs to enact the requirement at about 3:45 p.m. today.

PBOT has been working with Washington County to enact and enforce the requirements, which are in effect in the city and west of the Portland City limits in the county. The snow zone requirement will be in place from the sign posted at West Burnside just west of NW 24th Place, west to the intersection of SW Barnes Road and SW Baltic Ave, near the entrance to St. Vincent Hospital in Washington County.

The requirement is expected to be in effect overnight, and will remain in effect until conditions improve and the signs are changed to end the requirement.
