Clifton Street (Melrose to Woodford) will be closed to all but local resident traffic. Clifton Street will be closed for approximately two weeks at this time. Local residents will be able to access their driveways from Melrose Street.


Beginning Tuesday, March 28, Woodford Street between Forest Avenue (specifically Grace Street) and Vannah Avenue will be closed to all but local resident traffic. Local residents will be able to access their driveways from Melrose Street or Grace Street.


The work in Woodford Street will continue for the next several months as the contractor installs sewer, storm drain, water and gas utilities.


Flaggers and representatives from the Portland Police Department will be onsite to assist with traffic flow as needed.


The work and traffic pattern variations will run 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Drivers are encouraged to utilize alternative routes during this period.
