We hope you have a safe and wonderful Fourth of July celebration!
Please note that our office will be closed Wednesday, July 4th in observance of the holiday. We will resume our regular business hours on Thursday, July 5th.
We also want to make sure you are all aware of the upcoming road construction/closures scheduled to begin July 8th and continue through August 27th. There may be major traffic delays in the Portland metro area due to round-the-clock I-5 and I-84 bridge closures.
Here is a what we know:
The ramp from I-5 southbound to I-84 eastbound will completely close, 24/7 during the above dates.
July 25 – August 6

During this period, we plan to be open our normal business hours; however, we have no idea how bad the traffic or commute will be for our staff and clients. If you have meetings scheduled during this time, please allow for ample travel time and we will do our best to keep you informed of any changes to scheduled meetings. We look forward to connecting with you after the holiday, and if you have any questions please call (503) 274-4224.
