JCB & 32nd Ave. work update

From Jennifer Koozer, TriMet Community Affairs Representative:

Thanks for your patience with construction at the intersection of 32nd & Johnson Creek Boulevard. Our crews will continue working on the north side of Johnson Creek Boulevard for the next few weeks, along with PGE crews adjusting street light poles. Toward the end of the month, work will shift to the south side of the street, continuing through February. Flaggers will continue to direct traffic during mid-day work hours.
