Traffic impacts in SW Hillsdale neighborhood next week
Portland, OR- A Portland Water Bureau water main installation project will impact traffic on several streets in the Southwest Hills neighborhood next week.
* Approximately 300 feet of the left westbound lane of SW Capitol Highway, just east of the intersection of SW Capitol Highway and SW Terwilliger Boulevard, will be closed beginning Monday, October 13, from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The closure is scheduled to end on Friday October 17, at 3:00 p.m. Pedestrians using the alternate walking trail who wish to cross SW Capitol Highway going south will be guided to the crosswalk by a flagger.
* The two northbound lanes of SW Terwilliger Boulevard just north of SW Capitol Highway will remain open but will be reconfigured for construction to occur at the corner.
* A short section of SW Burlingame Avenue will be closed to all but local traffic on Monday, October 13. A contractor for the Water Bureau will begin the road restoration work on SW Burlingame Avenue on Monday. The temporary patch over the pipe trench will be removed and permanent asphalt installed. The work is expected to take one day. SW Burlingame Avenue, between SW Chestnut Street and SW Burlingame Terrace, will be open to local traffic only. No pedestrian access will be allowed during the street restoration work.
Motorists are urged to use alternate routes, remember to drive slowly, and exercise caution when traveling in the construction area.
