The closure between Hidden Springs Road and McKillican Street will begin at 9 a.m. and last until 11 p.m..

ODOT officials said the move is “an all-hands effort to accomplish in one day what may otherwise require close to a week to complete.” They will work with PGE and the cities of West Linn and Lake Oswego.
