(April 25, 2022) Paving work began today on SW Humphrey Boulevard from SW Scholls Ferry Road to SW Patton Road, as part of the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s (PBOT) ongoing street maintenance program. The work is expected to last approximately 15 business days, with work occurring between 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In total, PBOT crews will grind down and repave approximately 2.64 lane miles of pavement.
