Temporary Closure of South Portland Avenue Between SW 54th and SW 74th Streets
Beginning Monday, June 6, South Portland Avenue between SW 54th and SW 74th streets will be temporarily closed to through traffic. Daily commuters should avoid the area and use one of the alternate routes listed below. During the closure, customers and employees of Field Aerospace and Atlantic Aviation, both located on South Portland Avenue, will only have access to the facilities from SW 74th Street.
The temporary closure is necessary to complete water drainage infrastructure under South Portland Avenue. The infrastructure improvement is part of the South Portland Avenue relocation between SW 104th St. and SW 54th.
It is anticipated that the road will be closed approximately one month, dependent on weather.
