(June 30, 2021) As work nears final completion on the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s (PBOT) SW Naito Parkway Improvement Project, street paving has been scheduled for next week on SW Naito Parkway from SW Harrison to Market.

People traveling in the area should expect detours and delays from July 5 to 10.

Construction is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5 and should be complete by Sunday evening July 10. Crews will work to pave the final "top lift" of asphalt in this section of roadway, completing the final phase of the pavement maintenance work for the project.

People driving on SW Naito should expect delays and detours. At times, people driving south on Naito Parkway will be detoured at Market to S Harbor Drive and people driving northbound will be detoured at Harrison to SW Fourth Avenue.

People driving on SW Market and SW Harrison should expect delays and flaggers through the work zone on Naito Parkway. People walking, biking and rolling should expect delays as flaggers assist them through the work zone. Nearby residents and businesses can expect construction noise.

The road should be reopened with temporary striping in place on Monday, July 11.

This work is weather dependent and the schedule is subject to change.

The SW Naito Parkway Improvement Project project includes significant upgrades to the traffic signals, including some new and upgraded signals, along SW Naito Parkway from I-405 to just beyond SW Jefferson Street, to improve the safety and efficiency for pedestrians and people driving and biking.

Beginning at SW Harrison and extending north to SW Jefferson, SW Naito was completely rebuilt from the ground up, with safety and efficiency improvements for all travel modes. It built a two-way separated off-street path between SW Harrison Street and SW Clay Street.

PBOT greatly appreciates the patience and understanding of nearby residents and businesses. Learn what you can expect in our work zones and how you can help everyone stay safe by watching this video: https://youtu.be/lx3RkJjkjSE

Construction on the SW Naito Parkway Improvement Project is scheduled to be complete this summer.

After the work scheduled for this week is complete, crews will return in late July for final striping of the roadway once the pavement has cured. Sign up to receive the latest construction updates on the SW Naito Parkway Improvement Project - I-405 to SW Jefferson website.

This project is made possible by $1.6 million from the Fixing our Streets program and other funding from Transportation System Development charges and other sources. Fixing Our Streets funds are also leveraging additional Oregon Department of Transportation funding.
