City of Portland Environmental Services is beginning construction of a new bridge on SW Boones Ferry Road where it crosses Tryon Creek. The new bridge will improve water flows by replacing an existing small culvert.
Starting March 19, 2020 and lasting for up to seven months, SW Boones Ferry Road will be completely closed from SW Arnold to SW Comus Court.
Electronic reader boards and signage will be placed ahead of time to guide people to the recommended detour route. Flaggers will be located at the closure area to direct traffic. Please plan ahead to find alternate routes.
Construction in underway!
Located at the corner of A Avenue and 3rd Street, the new City Hall will provide a seismically safe, energy efficient and better functioning building for the community. It will include space for the Police Department and our 9-1-1 dispatch center (LOCOM), as well as public meeting places. It will also provide storefront space for the Lake Oswego Arts Council, and for the Friends of the Library’s “Booktique.”
On April 25, the City will be holding a one-day-only drug take-back event to help citizens properly dispose of unwanted or expired prescription medicines. Vape pens or other e‐cigarette devices will be collected from individual consumers if the batteries are removed.
