Street improvement closes lane on NE Cesar Chavez Boulevard beginning March 14
(PORTLAND, Ore.) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require a lane closure on Northeast Cesar Chavez Boulevard between Northeast Senate Street and Northeast Wasco Street beginning Thursday, March 14, through Monday, March 18, all hours and all days. The public is advised to expect delays, travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
The southbound right lane (curb lane) will be closed all hours and all days for this project with the southbound left lane open. Northbound traffic will be unaffected. The lane closure is necessary to remove and replace both the base and the surface layers of an isolated section of the road to stabilize the foundation of the road and prevent potholes and other surface distress.
Local access to residences and businesses will be provided.
This work is weather-dependent, and the schedule may change.
