From the Lake Oswego Tigard Partnership Newsletter:
“Last week, work began at the intersection of Portland Avenue and W. Clackamas Boulevard to install a pipeline crossing and connect to the new intake. This work involves a large excavation at the intersection, and Portland Avenue between Arlington Street to W. Clackamas Boulevard is closed to through traffic while this work is occurring. Access to the river intake work site will be maintained. The crossing work is expected to be complete by Thanksgiving. Please watch for signage directing you safely around all pipeline work as there is no pedestrian or bike access during construction.
Some key information about construction:
- Traffic detours and temporary closures will be in place, usually one block at a time
- Equipment and material (e.g., gravel, pipe, etc.) will be stored and parked in the right-of-way
- No on-street parking in the one block closure zone during construction
- Truck traffic and construction noise during construction
Work hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. “
