The City’s Bureau of Transportation has advised that leaves will be swept in Leaf District NW 1 on March 14th. NW 1 is the area encompassed by Burnside, 21st, Marshall and 16th. The flyer advises that Parking restrictions will be in place and enforced. If the past is any indication, there will be signs on the streets about two days before.This is “catch-up” sweeping of leaves that were frozen when this was scheduled in December.
SW 1 (other side of Burnside) is scheduled for 12 March. The circular mentions sweeping gravel both days on Lovejoy from NW 24 to NW 25th, continuing up Cornell up to the first tunnel.

Feb 14, 2014: A portion of Northwest Cornell Road was closed because of a landslide early Friday morning. According to police, the slide happened between the tunnels on the road in Northwest Portland around 4:34 a.m.
Both lanes were partially blocked by the slide, prompting police to close it completely. There was no immediately estimate on when it will reopen.
Commuters are urged to avoid the roads because the closure is likely will be lenghty. City of Portland crews have been called to the scene to asses the rock slide and begin clean-up efforts.
