Portion of Veterans Drive to close Tuesday for maintenance
Driver's beware: A portion of Northeast Veterans Drive will be closed Tuesday, Jan. 8 through Thursday, Jan. 10.
Located south of the Washington County Fair Complex, Veterans Drive is often used as an alternative to busy Cornell Road. Crews will be planting new shrubs along the street and removing dead plants. The city said in a statement it will be closing portions of the road as a safety precaution.
Veterans Drive will be closed between Northeast 34th Avenue and Northeast Brookwood Parkway between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Jan 7 through Jan. 10. Sidewalks and bicycle lanes will remain open.
Drivers can still access the TriMet Fair Complex MAX station from Northeast 34th Avenue or use Veterans Drive from Northeast 28th Avenue, the city said.
