And handing away millions of dollars to their cronies:
On the next two Saturdays, November 3 and 10, one lane of SE Powell
Blvd eastbound will be closed between 13th and 21st avenues due to
Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Transit Project construction work.
The lane closure will take place 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on those two days.
All driveways and side streets will remain accessible, including the
exit to southbound 17th Ave.
