Map of Lusted Road construction area
Installation of a culvert will require a section of SE Lusted Road in rural east Multnomah County to close for several weeks, beginning Monday, November 26 at 7 am. The road is expected to reopen by Saturday, December 8.

During construction, SE Lusted Road will be closed to through traffic between SE Altman Road and SE Hosner Road. The detour route for through traffic will be from SE Hosner Road to SE Oxbow Drive to SE Altman Road. Access will be maintained on SE Lusted Road at all times for local traffic, delivery vehicles and emergency vehicles, up to the work zone which is near 33334 SE Lusted Road.

A contractor working for Multnomah County will replaced a culvert that failed in 2017, causing stormwater to flood over the road. A new culvert, catch basin and guardrail will be installed to improve drainage and safety. The guardrail will be installed in late December and will not require a road closure.

The estimated $130,000 project is funded by Multnomah County. For project information visit: www.multco.us/lusted or follow us on Twitter @MultCoRoads.
