PORTLAND — Preble Street Extension will be closed entirely from Marginal Way to Baxter Boulevard, beginning 9 p.m. Friday, April 5, through 9 p.m. Sunday, April 7.

City Hall spokeswoman Jessica Grondin said the closing will allow contractors to dig a manhole and install a pipe near the intersection of Marginal Way and Preble Street Extension as part of the combined sewer overflow work in the area.

Outbound motorists will be directed to Marginal Way and then Forest Avenue as a detour. Southbound motorists can reach inbound Preble Street via Marginal Way.

The southbound Preble Street Extension lanes have been closed since March 18, with only a single northbound lane left open. Those closures are expected to end April 22.
