(Nov. 8, 2019) The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) advises that crews contracted with PBOT will be paving the northbound lanes on N Denver Avenue between Lombard and Watts streets on Monday, Nov. 11 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is the final major paving work for this project.

Work will begin at 8 a.m. and will be completed by 3 p.m. Southbound traffic be will unaffected, while northbound traffic will follow the detour currently in place at N Interstate Avenue. Nearby residents can expect construction noise and people driving can expect delays on N Denver Avenue between the hours of 8 p.m. and 3 p.m. 

Residents on the east side of N Denver Avenue will be unable to access driveways during work hours. Sidewalks will remain open for pedestrians.

We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane detours and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible. Learn what you can expect in our work zones and how you can help everyone stay safe by watching this video:

PBOT greatly appreciates the patience and understanding of nearby residents and businesses as we work to wrap up this construction project.

About Fixing Our Streets:

In May 2016, Portland voters put their trust in the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) when they approved Measure 26-173, a new 10-cent gas tax for fixing our streets and making them safer. This was the first local funding source in the city’s history dedicated exclusively to the city’s transportation needs. With these funds, PBOT has been working hard to deliver for Portland. Under the banner of Fixing Our Streets, PBOT manages every project funded by these taxes to maintain a safe and reliable transportation system for everyone.
