Some East County schools on delayed start Friday
UPDATE: TriMet says buses chained on East Side and in West Hills; Reynolds district closes
Frigid temperatures combined with an east wind left many moist streets in East Multnomah County with black ice on Friday morning. As a result, several school districts announced delayed starts.
Centennial and Gresham-Barlow school districts are on a two-hour delay for today (Nov. 14). Reynolds district closed for the day. Students were out of class anyway for parent conferences.
Corbett schools are closed altogether. Buses in the David Douglas School District are on snow routes, but no delayed start is in effect.
There are some slick areas, particularly on the east side, Gresham area and in Portlands west hills. TriMet crews have been sanding some icy spots in those areas.
Bus lines running with chains for the morning due to icy streets include: 18-Hillside, 51-Vista, 63-Washington Park/Arlington Hts, 80-Kane/Troutdale Rd, 81-Kane/257th. With the chains on, buses on these lines will be running slower.Slick conditons
