Beginning tomorrow (9/13), SW Broadway Drive just south of downtown Portland will be closed to all traffic for three months.
The closure is for an unscheduled retaining wall project that will be conducted by the Bureau of Transportation. PBOT says the work is necessary to prevent a future landslide and/or roadway failure. SW Broadway is not the main road in this area, but it is a popular alternate bicycling route to SW Terwiliger.
To accomodate bicycle traffic during the closure, PBOT will sign a detour. The route uses SW Hoffman and then switchbacks up to SW Davenport. See a detailed map below and download a PDF of the detour here.
