Beginning Wednesday, October 2, 2019, Front Street NE between D St. NE and Market Street NE will be closed to all through traffic. Local access will be maintained, and all area businesses will remain open. Flaggers will be onsite to assist and direct local traffic. The closure will be in place 24 hours per day, for seven days a week, until the anticipated completion date of October 18, 2019.
The temporary closure of Front Street will allow Portland and Western (PNWR) Railroad to complete approximately 500 feet of railroad track repairs. This is an ongoing project, and it is expected that additional track repairs along Front Street will occur over the next several years. City crews will repave each stretch of road following the track repairs.
