If you blinked, you missed it
After months of tension between the two professional lighting companies based between S.E. 19th and 20th and between Insley and McLoughlin, about the need for good truck access to northbound McLoughlin while Insley is closed at 18th for major sewer work, the City of Portland did find a Vancouver contractor able to pave the unfinished block of S.E. 20th between Harold and Insley.
The work was started and completed on the same day--January 23rd.
As you're driving the fresh asphalt surface, if you're wondering how it got there, THE BEE caught the work in progress (above right) on that day.
