Repair crews close one lane of West Burnside today

Posted: Updated:

The eastbound lane of West Burnside is currently closed about 300 yards east of the turnoff for Pittock Mansion and won't reopen until 6 p.m.

The closure in needed so crews can complete repairs to the road where an eight-inch, cast iron water pipe ruptured Monday.

Temporary repairs were made Monday when the break occurred. Today the job will be completed as crews apply permanent asphalt on the damaged section of the road.
