The work is being done between 19th and 23rd avenues. The project manager says Willamette Street is failing and needs to be repaired. Work will include storm water and sidewalk works to re-paving the road. There will also be bike lanes added.
Crews say if you travel in that area, expect delays and detours.
“We are looking to maintain southbound traffic as much as we can. There are going to be road closures. As a matter of fact, next week, starting on Monday, we’ll have a road closure right at 19th (avenue),” said Brian Davies, Project Manager.
Davies says the construction is scheduled to be completed in early October.
