Interstate 5 / Barbur Boulevard Corridor Management

The I-5/Barbur Boulevard Parallel Corridor Traffic Management Demonstration Project is a project that seeks to deploy and integrate traffic surveillance and control activities throughout the corridor. The project facilitates cooperative use of various ITS devices, including variable message signs, CCTV cameras, ramp meters, and traffic signals, to help minimize delay when incidents occur on either roadway.

It allows the primary project partners – the city of Portland and ODOT – to better exchange information and use various ITS devices to provide improved information and mobility to motorists. The project limits are the Interstate 405 junction to the north and the city of Portland/Tigard city limits on the south. The project went on-line in April 2003.
