Ocean Avenue Closure from Parsons Street to Austin Street Begins December 7, 2020

construction work

Beginning December 7, 2020 the City’s Mackworth, Ocean, Walton CSO Separation Phase 1 project will enter Ocean Avenue at Mackworth Street. This work is part of the City's effort to reduce Combined Sewer Overflows into Back Cove. The work includes the installation of a new storm drain and the replacement of the existing sanitary sewer. Portland Water District will also be replacing their main within the street. Once the utility work is complete, the roadway will be paved with new pavement.

IMPORTANT INFO FOR MOTORISTS: Ocean Avenue will be closed from Parsons Street to Austin Street for approximately six months. The contractor will be working within this zone between 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM Monday thru Friday. During the construction period the roadway will not be open to thru traffic and will only be open to residents one way at night and on weekends.

IMPORTANT INFO FOR RESIDENTS: The contractor will be required to maintain local driveway access within the Ocean Avenue work zone. It should be noted that local traffic will only be allowed to travel from East to West along Ocean Avenue (One-Way). You must start from the Walton side and travel towards Forest Ave. The entrance to the Ocean Avenue Elementary School will remain open but expect delays.

DETOUR INFORMATION

Motorists should use Forest Avenue to Read Street, as the preferred detour route to get around the construction zone. Local motorists on Ocean Avenue will be directed via Parsons Street to Clifton Street to Austin Street or vice versa but expect major delays. Please use the preferred route.
