238th Drive reopens in Wood Village tonight


A section of Northeast 238th Drive in Wood Village is scheduled to re-open by 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16 following a closure for a road safety improvement project.

The road has been closed between Northeast Glisan Street/Cherry Park Road and Northeast Treehill Drive for several weeks.

For the next three weeks, a single lane will be closed during weekday work hours as the contractor completes the project. A traffic lane will remain open in both directions.

Westech Construction made safety improvements to the road near the bottom of a steep hill, adding a shoulder to the northbound lane, shifting a sidewalk east and removing vegetation to improve sightlines for travelers.

The $200,000 project was funded through federal and Multnomah County funds.
