Portland and Western Railroad will perform work adjacent to River Road South to replace a failed railroad culvert on Thursday, September 28 and Friday, September 29. Due to the close proximity of the work to the road, the southbound lane of River Road South will be closed during daytime work hours. Flaggers will be stationed to guide drivers through the work area.
The lane closure will be located at Milepost 3.3, approximately 1 mile south of Sawmill Road S., immediately south of the existing railroad undercrossing. The southbound lane of River Road South will be closed from 8:00 a.m. until approximately 5:00 p.m. each day. Flaggers will direct traffic at all times while work is underway and both lanes will reopen at the end of the work day.
Drivers are reminded to use caution when approaching and driving through work zones. Please obey all posted traffic signs and follow the flaggers' directions. No vehicle restrictions will be imposed during the work but drivers should expect a short delay.
