Beginning in mid-July Kane will be closed from Northeast 17th Street to Northeast 23rd Street

OUTLOOK FILE PHOTO - Heavy rain and a large flow of runoff in Kelly Creek in 2015 undermined a culvert, leading to a collapse of a 140-foot section of Kane Drive near Mt. Hood Community College. Though a temporary repair has been in place, workers are about to begin work on a permanent fix. Drivers will have to avoid Kane Drive later this month as permanent replacement of the Kelly Creek culvert will force a closure of the roadway.

Beginning in mid-July Kane will be closed from Northeast 17th Street to Northeast 23rd Street. The closure will last for several weeks, with businesses and apartments remaining accessible.

The culvert was damaged in December 2015 after a historic rainstorm washed out a 140-foot long section of Kane Drive. At the time, the city of Gresham made an emergency repair to reopen the route, but now a more permanent solution is needed.

For the project, the city is using funds from the Federal Highway Administration. To learn more about the repairs, and to receive email updates, visit https://GreshamOregon.gov/Kane-Drive or call 503-618-2525.
