Portland General Electric is upgrading transmission towers and the work will lead to several closures of the Springwater Corridor path from now through mid-March.
A PGE spokesperson says path users should expect short rolling closures and detours Monday through Saturday from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm while the work is being done. Two weeks notice via signage on the path has been promised as well as detailed detour information. They’ve even created an interactive map that will be updated every Wednesday morning through the length of the project.
The work is expected to begin near Boring and work its way west toward OMSI in Portland.

“When our work is done, your energy will be safer and more reliable and take us one step closer to Oregon’s clean energy future. Thank you for your understanding and patience,” says PGE.
