Note the following bike lane closure announcement from the City of Portland’s Keep it Moving website:
Beginning Monday, September 21, the two right travel lanes and the bike lane on SW Broadway will be closed at the Morrison and Yamhill intersections for brick repair. Bicyclists will merge with three lanes of traffic into a single lane, and should definitely expect delays on Broadway in this vicinity. Alternate southbound route choices include SW 11th, SW 5th, SW 3rd, and SW Naito Parkway. The lane closures will remain in place all hours through the week, although workers will try to restore enough room for bikes to pass on the right when they are not working. Once the workers finish the repairs, the setting material must cure before motor vehicle traffic returns. The lanes should reopen by the end of the week. Pedestrians should be aware that the crosswalk across Yamhill on the east side of Broadway may be closed during this work. The brick intersection repair project is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, putting Oregonians to work!
