SWAN ISLAND COMMUTER ALERT: Willamette Blvd Under Construction

Attention Swan Island Commuters!

A Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) construction project to address seismic issues and improve bike/pedestrian access along North Willamette Boulevard may impact your commute for the coming few months.

Over the next four months, PBOT will be detouring all westbound/northbound motorized vehicle traffic between N Chase and N Washburne Avenues via N Lombard Street. Construction between N Chase and N Washburne Avenues will require a partial road closure but southbound/eastbound traffic on N Willamette Blvd will be maintained and will remain open during the Project.

NOTE: Pedestrian and northbound/westbound bicycle traffic will be allowed to use the sidewalks on the north side of N Willamette Blvd during the course of construction. The southbound/eastbound bicycle lane will remain open, even during the partial road closure.

More information available HERE. Or visit the Bike Portland post about the closure HERE.


Thanks for your cooperation and please let the TMA know if you have any questions.
