Vehicles and bicycles:

2016 Traffic Impacts Map

When needed, traffic may be reduced down to one lane with flaggers moving each direction of traffic (see lane restriction hours allowed below).

Left turns into driveways and onto side streets remain restricted during construction – plan accordingly. Obeying this restriction will be critical when sewer line work occurs down the center of the road. There will be varying road grades due to trenching work.

Law enforcement will continue to assist in monitoring the work zone to ensure travelers are following all traffic control measures in place.

Travelers should expect delays or use alternate routes during construction. TV Highway and Allen Boulevard are the suggested alternate routes for through traffic, including truck traffic.

  • Daytime work hours: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday (weekends as needed)
  • Lane restriction hours: 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday

Pedestrians:

Pedestrians will continue using the north side of the road until the sidewalk is poured on the south side (and when north side road work begins). TriMet bus stops will remain available for the #52 bus line.
