News article

Paving between Powell and Division, and continued sidewalk work further south


This week crews are grinding and paving SE 136th Avenue between SE Powell Boulevard and Division Street. While crews are working, the street will be one way only, alternating between being open only in the northbound or southbound direction. After a roadway is milled it is much rougher and can at times have more debris. We encourage everyone to drive slowly and with caution. The street should be back open in both directions with temporary striping and bike lanes by the weekend. Final striping will be installed later in august after the pavement cures.

At the same time, work is continuing on SE 136th Avenue between SE Holgate and Powell boulevards. Crews are cutting pavement, excavating, and pouring concrete for the new sidewalks, curbs, and driveway connections. This work also includes some utility relocation. Work along this section of SE 136th Avenue will continue for the next few weeks.
