Traffic alert: SE Hawthorne and Madison reconstruction

Posted by on July 19th, 2010 at 9:26 am

From the Bureau of Transportation:

SE Hawthorne and SE Madison reconstruction work begins Sunday night

The Portland Bureau of Transportation will be reconstructing SE Hawthorne Boulevard and SE Madison Street between SE Grand and SE 12th beginning Sunday night. The general public should expect delays in the area due to lane closures.

The street surfaces will be ground down and repaved over the next three weeks. Travelers should expect rough surfaces and use caution in the work zone. The bicycle lanes on SE Hawthorne and SE Madison will be removed during construction. Bicycles will be sharing wider outside lanes with motorized vehicles. Sidewalks will remain open.

The majority of reconstruction work will occur between 6 p.m. and 7 a.m. to minimize impact to motorists and cyclists. More information can be found at www.keepportlandmoving.org.
