Emergency sewer repair slows travel in Northeast Portland beginning Thursday

Urgent repairs to a 110-year-old sewer main will slow traffic in northeast Portland beginning Thursday, August 4.

Portland Environmental Services teams will work at the intersection of Northeast 33rd Avenue and Knott Street from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and occasionally on Saturdays.

The project will create a new maintenance hole and repair a sinkhole created in the roadway. The work could last until mid-September.

To prevent vehicles from cutting through residential streets, traffic will be diverted onto Northeast 15th Avenue. The area immediately south of the intersection of 33rd and Knott will be closed for the duration of the project plan.
