(April 22, 2021) Paving work begins this Monday, April 26 on NW Skyline Boulevard from NW Hawkins Boulevard to NW Cornell Road, as part of the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s (PBOT) ongoing street maintenance program. The work is expected to last approximately five business days, with work occurring between 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

During construction, travelers will be detoured to NW Thompson Road. Flaggers will be on-site to direct traffic.

In total, PBOT crews will grind down and repave approximately 0.5 lane miles of pavement.

The traveling public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel slowly and cautiously in our work zones, observe all detours and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.

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