Amazon Parkway will be closed to all traffic starting Monday, January 21. The closure will impact both southbound and northbound lanes, between 19th and 24th avenues, and could last until February 7. Drivers should expect delays as they travel around the work zone and plan accordingly.
The closure will allow for the installation of needed infrastructure at the old Civic Stadium site. Crews will need to remove the road, install new stormwater and wastewater lines and remove the pedestrian crossing over Amazon Parkway.
Detours will be in place for drivers and are as follows:
- Northbound traffic – turn west onto East 24th Avenue and north onto Willamette Street
- Southbound traffic – turn east onto East 19th Avenue and south onto Patterson Street
The closure will be in place 24-hours a day as crews work to safely remove the bridge and install the new sewer lines. The road will be open as soon as the work is completed.
Amazon Path will not be impacted as part of this construction. Crews will eventually install a street crossing at street level in place of the bridge, however that work is not planned as part of the closure.
