Streetcar work narrows NE Weidler in Lloyd District next week
The Portland Bureau of Transportation announced that NE Weidler would be narrowed to one through lane and one right-turn lane from NE Third to NE Martin Luther King the week beginning Monday, January 31. NE Weidler currently has three through lanes and one right-turn lane in this area. The NE Weidler bike lane will be closed from 3rd to MLK and cyclists will be directed to use open lanes.
Lane restrictions are due to track installation for the Portland Streetcar Loop Project. The area of this work zone on NE Weidler begins at NE First and ends at NE Grand. Lane restrictions are scheduled for four weeks, although construction is subject to change.
The traveling public is asked to follow signs and use caution in work zones.
The Portland Streetcar Loop Project is a 3.3-mile extension of the existing streetcar system from the Pearl District in NW Portland, across the Broadway Bridge and south to OMSI.
