Noticed signs on my commute home via the Springwater that the section between 128th and 158th is going to be closed Aug 16-20 8AM to 4PM. The signs were put up by PGE, so presumably this will be for power line maintenance or brush clearing around them. It’s significant because you won’t be able to enter/exit Powell Butte from the Springwater during those times.
While the closure won’t affect me because my commute times are just outside of those hours, there could be equipment or vehicles on the trail that week outside of those hours.
I hope I got the dates and times right as my phone’s in for repair so I couldn’t take a picture.
