On Hwy 43 (SW Macadam Ave) just south of the Sellwood Bridge

Portland, OregonMar 18, 20132 Comments

This is a van parked on the West side of the road just south of the Sellwood Bridge and just inside the "orange flagged construction zone". The issue here is there is not a posted speed limit…just a flagger north of the bridge holding a stop/slow sign. Once south of the bridge there is no construction occurring but orange signs are still present. Another controversy…the van is parked just in front of the very visible 45mph sign and the "end construction zone" sign. Teaser!!! I’m sure many a Portlander will be crossing their fingers here.

Been there - got the ticket - 40 in a 25 - $320 big ones! Set up just as described - i saw it and thought i'd be good because there was no work going at all - no people standing around leaning on signs like city employees do - figured they just had't adjusted the zone closer in because it is quite a distance from the work being done on the bridge. No contest with explanation - hopefully get the fine reduced.
