VIP Alert! Expect traffic delays at DEQ’s NE 33rd Drive emission test station this Saturday, April 4


Motorists planning to visit DEQ’s Northeast Portland vehicle emission test station at 7701 NE 33rd Drive this Saturday, April 4 should prepare for significant traffic delays due to a half-marathon race that will begin north of the station on NE 33rd Drive.
Expect traffic delays and vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the vicinity of the station from 7:15 a.m. to at least 9 a.m.
The station will be open during its regular hours, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., but DEQ suggests that motorists may want to consider taking their vehicle to another DEQ station instead on Saturday, April 4.
Organizers for the Hop Hop Half Half Marathon say the event is certified. Police and race volunteers will be on hand to help control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, but motorists using the DEQ test station should exercise extra caution.
