Summer Road Construction to Effect I-84 and I-5

ODOT will close the bridge ramps connecting I-84 and I-5 in order to have three of the four ramps resurfaced, replace bridge joints and perform other structural repairs. The project is expected to cost $6.5 million dollars. "This summer, travelers in the Portland metro area will see the busiest construction season in about the last 10 years!" ODOT Spokeswoman Kimberly Dinwiddie said.

Construction Impacts
This work will require around-the-clock two week closure of three of the bridges that connect I-84 and I-5 in July and August 2018.  Only one bridge will close at a time. 
The bridge that connects I-5 northbound to I-84 eastbound will only require nighttime closures. 

In addition to the two-week closures, overnight ramp closures could occur nightly from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through November 2018. More details will be available as construction progresses. 


Construction June - December 2018
The following ramps will close for 24 hours a day for up to two weeks:

10 p.m. Sun., July 8 to 5 a.m. Mon., July 23: I-5 southbound ramp to I-84 eastbound closed

10 p.m. Wed., July 25 to 5 a.m. Mon., Aug. 6: I-84 westbound to I-5 northbound closed

10 p.m. Fri., July 27 to 5 a.m. Thurs., Aug. 2: Only one lane open on I-84 westbound from Lloyd Center to I-5. The far left lane will remain open during this period.

10 p.m. Fri., Aug. 17 to 5 a.m. Mon., Aug. 27: I-84 westbound to I-5 southbound closed leaving only one lane of I-84 westbound open from Lloyd Center to I-5. The far right lane will remain open during this period.
