Traffic Advisory:

Demonstrations downtown may lead to limited road closures Saturday, Aug. 17

(Aug. 13, 2019) On Saturday August 17, the Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the public to expect a limited number of road closures in downtown Portland from about 11 a.m. through the afternoon. This is because of demonstrations where some publicly available social media postings indicate some participants intend to engage in criminal acts of violence.

The public is advised to avoid the area from SW Madison Street to SW Alder Street, and from SW Fourth Avenue to Waterfront Park.

Check trimet.org/alerts before heading out on transit, or sign up for TriMet service alerts by email or text message at trimet.org/email. If Police determine an area has become unsafe, TriMet will adjust their service for the safety of riders and employees.
