Information on the City of Portland's Spring Street Reconstruction

Portland is undergoing exciting growth and change, and projects are underway to improve our city’s accessibility and to make our community more pedestrian friendly, welcoming, and aesthetically pleasing. One such project is the Spring Street Reconstruction. During the construction phase of this project, please be aware that from mid-August until approximately mid-October of 2015, there will be temporary street closures and lack of parking on the segment of Spring Street between Temple and State streets. Parking can be found on Free Street, in one of several lots or garages, or on one of the many cross streets that run perpendicular to Spring Street. Thank you for your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience to our visitors. For more information on the Spring Street reconstruction, click here.
