It just seems like they're done with Capitol Highway
Multnomah Village will get a break from road work, construction crews, heavy equipment, detours and delays after this weekend but there's still work to be done next year.
The original plan was to complete the repaving of Southwest Capitol Highway through Multnomah Village before the fall rains came. That plan has now changed.
Here's press release from PBOT:
"Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT)- contracted crews didn't quite complete the HYPERLINK "https://lnks.gd/l/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJidWxsZXRpbl9saW5rX2lkIjoxMDIsInVyaSI6ImJwMjpjbGljayIsImJ1bGxldGluX2lkIjoiMjAxOTEwMjIuMTE4NTYxMDEiLCJ1cmwiOiJodHRwczovL3d3dy5wb3J0bGFuZG9yZWdvbi5nb3YvdHJhbnNwb3J0YXRpb24vYXJ0aWNsZS82NzYzMzM_dXRtX21lZGl1bT1lbWFpbCZ1dG1fc291cmNlPWdvdmRlbGl2ZXJ5In0.CX7P0DkwCrODTF7a9S6voTRG8Lcq8BHaQmXLlxwopbI/br/70412356669-l" Capitol Highway Paving Project before the rainy season, and so are cleaning up and hibernating for the winter. There will be no sign of construction. The road will be open and driveable. Access to businesses will be returned to normal.
To prevent flooding and improve safety, PBOT-contracted crews will clean up the construction area at SW Capitol Highway and 35th Avenue. Crews will complete work by Sunday, Oct. 27."
It's not clear form the release if the temporary crosswalk markings that look like a classroom painting project will be upgraded. "Crews will be removing steel plates from the roadway to finish paving excavated areas, installing permanent stop signs, and installing temporary crosswalk markings," says the release.
Then that's it until next year.
"PBOT will share additional updates and an anticipated 2020 construction schedule by February 2020 and will coordinate with businesses to minimize construction impacts," according to the press release.
