SW Boones Ferry Road

2/12/20: Official announcement

The City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services is beginning a restoration and bridge-building project on Tryon Creek at SW Boones Ferry Road to restore healthy water flows to the creek and improve connections for fish, wildlife, and people.

Environmental Services advises the traveling public that construction of the project’s main feature – a 125-foot-long steel girder bridge - will involve lane closures later this month on SW Boones Ferry Road near SW Arnold Street, and a full road closure starting in late March for up to seven months.

During lane closures, flaggers will be on site; people are asked to travel cautiously, expect some delays, observe directions of reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes when possible.

For the full closure, travelers are advised to use a recommended detour that directs Boones Ferry Road travelers to use SW Stephenson Street and SW 35th to reach SW Terwilliger Boulevard. The closure will be in effect all hours, all days, to all travelers, including non-motorized use. Local access will be provided.

Anyone ride this yet? Please keep us posted about how it’s going.
