Press Release: NW Germantown Rd closed Oct 15-22 for culvert repair
Replacement of a failed culvert will require a section of NW Germantown Rd between NW Skyline Blvd. and NW Kaiser Rd to be closed to through traffic from Monday, October 15 at 7:30 am until as late as Monday, October 22.
A culvert that carries stormwater under the road near 13766 NW Germantown Rd has failed, leading to erosion and damage to the road. A contractor will replace the culvert, repair the slope, add a guardrail and realign the road away from the slope.
Traffic impacts include:
- Local traffic, emergency and delivery vehicles will be able to access NW Germantown Rd up to the full closure where the culvert is being replaced.
- Alternate routes for through traffic include NW Springville Road, NW Skyline Blvd. and NW Cornelius Pass Road
- Local traffic only are recommended for NW Old Germantown Road, a narrow, steep and winding road that is not suitable as a detour.
Important! Summer Traffic Notice
Construction has begun on Sturgeon Lake Restoration Project!
Construction work has started this week on NW Reeder Road on Sauvie Island at Dairy Creek to build a by-pass road, remove two failing culverts in Dairy Creek and construct a permanent bridge. Beginning the week of July 9, the work will delay traffic through the construction area, and will be particularly felt during peak traffic times on summer weekends as visitors head to Sauvie Island beaches, due to the use of a temporary, paved bypass road around the bridge construction site. This is a major phase of the project that will last through the busy Labor Day weekend. Construction, which will also include deepening and clearing out the Dairy Creek channel, is expected to be completed in the fall.

Sauvie Island, originally Wapato Island, is approximately 10 miles north of Portland, Oregon. It is the largest island in the Columbia River and one of the largest islands in the U.S. Located at the junction of the Columbia River to the east, Willamette River to the south and Multnomah Channel to the west, the island’s northern half is a wildlife refuge and the southern half is predominantly rural farmland with small residential enclaves. Access to the island is by the Sauvie Island Bridge on Highway 30.
