102nd Avenue: Slow down, you won’t move too fast

Thompson Brothers Excavation flagger Kit Millard slows southbound traffic on 102nd Avenue while work proceeds northward as part of the 102nd Avenue Project. After the July 4th weekend, crews expect to be moving to the westbound Halsey Street jug handle, causing the most serious delays and traffic tie-ups yet.
The word from project manager Dan Layden: expect periodic northbound delays on Northeast 102nd Avenue this month from Southeast Stark to Northeast Weidler streets.

Layden says the street may be restricted at times to one-lane northbound between Northeast Glisan and Pacific streets during the early part of July, then from Pacific to Halsey. This will occur, when it does, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The larger 102nd Avenue traffic concern for Mid-county motorists comes after the July 4th holiday weekend when the jughandle, or slip road accessing westbound Halsey Street, is shut down — and northbound 102nd Avenue traffic is detoured. Expect delays and, when possible, take an alternate route.

There are similar, though less drastic 102nd Avenue detours near the post office on Southeast Stark Street. Eventually the project will not only provide better access to the post office, but also create a retaining wall made of recycled asphalt chunks.
