A section of the Fanno Creek Trail southeast of Beaverton will be closed an estimated 6-8 weeks due to a sewage leak.
Stephen Sykes, a spokesman for the City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services, says a water leak was discovered last Friday (7/22) on the trail near SW 82nd Avenue. When tests confirmed the water was sewage, BES closed the trail until repairs can be made.
Sykes says trail traffic will have to make a half-mile detour south to SW Garden Home Blvd to get around the closure, which is between SW 82nd and SW 83rd Avenues. Check this link in Google Maps for detailed look at the area.
