Hello Scotsmen family and friends,
It has been a great school year so far! It is hard to believe that we are almost done with this year. We have shared so many successes this year to all the hard work of our students and staff here at David Douglas! We would like to continue to encourage our students to strive for greatness and continue providing the additional support outside/inside the home our students need to be successful. Always great to be a Scotsman!
Best Wishes, Principal John Bier
Graduation Day June 1 – Traffic Detours to the Chiles Center
As graduation quickly approaches, we wanted to keep you in the loop about traffic concerns. Give yourselves plenty of time to get there and get seated before graduation. As there tends to be a bit of traffic with the amount of attendees/graduates, there may be some delays with construction happening as well. Attached is the traffic information you should be aware of and below is the link to the detours.
The University has learned that the City of Portland will begin major construction that will close northbound Willamette Blvd. beginning next week. Below is information that we encourage you to share with your community as it will effect traffic during all high school commencements.
Temporary Traffic Impacts
PBOT is gearing up for a retaining wall project along N Willamette Boulevard between N Chase Ave. and N Washburne Ave. and is closing Willamette Blvd. to northbound traffic from May 23 through “early Fall 2016.”
Unfortunately, a partial road closure will be required to complete the retaining wall work. The westbound/northbound lane carrying N Willamette Blvd toward the University of Portland will be closed to all motorized vehicle traffic all hours and all days during the project duration. A detour along N Lombard St will be in effect for re-routed traffic (see map on back).
Southbound/eastbound traffic on N Willamette Blvd will be maintained and will remain unchanged during the Project. Local access to residents near the project will be provided at all times. Pedestrian and bicycle traffic will be allowed to use the sidewalks on the north side of N Willamette Blvd during the course of construction. The southbound/eastbound bicycle lane will remain open, even during the partial road closure.
All the info can be found here, along with the detour map:
