What's New with PDX Next: More Crane Work and Carbon Health Moves
After a mention in last week's issue, we now have additional details about crane work that starts late tonight.
If you arrive or depart during the wee hours – between 12:30 and 3:30 a.m., now through Friday, Aug. 27 – your route may be impacted. Work will be limited to the south side and will mainly impact the south exit lane and south baggage claim.
As with previous crane work, this is related to new HVAC installation, and the area underneath each ductwork drop will be closed off to make sure everyone stays safe. You'll see signage and spotters redirecting passengers leaving Concourse B/C to an alternative exit. You may also see workers redirecting those heading to the TriMet platform escalator and elevator, the south baggage claim offices and, for employees only, the bypass door in that area.
Also of note for this week, Carbon Health is now in a new location. They shifted slightly to the north and are toward the center of the upper outer roadway.
