East Theater Lane Closure Traffic Control Plan

Drivers who use East Theater Lane, and Northeast Fourth Street should prepare for several weeks of rolling full street closures as contractors begin to install new water main beginning May 6, with work anticipated to continue through May 24.  The work will take place in four phases along East Theater between NE 2nd and NE 10th in order to minimize disruptions from the closures.  Maps of the closures are available HERE.  The most disruptions to traffic will occur within the first two phases, approximately between May 6 and May 17.  Maps showing the traffic control plan are available on the City of Hermiston’s website www.hermiston.or.us.
