ODOT is hosting a public open house on Thursday, April 23, 2015. Materials presented at the open house will be available here after the event.
You are invited to talk to ODOT’s project team and learn more about what to expect during construction at an informal public open house. TriMet will also be in attendance to provide information on re-routing TriMet Bus Line #79 during construction.

When the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) OR 224 Sunrise Corridor Project is complete, over-height freight loads which currently access 82nd Drive will no longer be able to use 82nd Drive (the designated Oversized Freight Route) to avoid current height restrictions on Interstate 205 at SE Strawberry Lane.
In order to accommodate over-height truck loads on I-205, ODOT will increase the overhead vertical clearance of the SE Strawberry Lane overcrossing structure at I-205 from 17 feet 2 inches to 18 feet 8 inches. In addition, ODOT will seismically retrofit the structure. Construction on this project is scheduled to start in late spring/early summer 2015.
Permanently raise the existing SE Strawberry Lane structure at I-205 eighteen inches to obtain additional vertical clearance on I-205.
Raise approach embankments to match new grade requirements.
Construct retaining walls east of I-205 on the north and south sides of SE Strawberry Lane.*
Repave and stripe SE Strawberry Lane to match the final structure grade.
Construct a seismic retrofit on the existing structure for operational and safety requirements.
Project Location Map
Project Schedule **
- Late Spring/early Summer 2015: Construction Begins
- Late Summer 2015: Construction Completed
** Please note: schedule is subject to change due to weather and site conditions.
During construction expect the following types of impacts to traffic:
Strawberry Lane between Cason Road and 82nd Drive will be closed to all traffic (including bicyclists and pedestrians) for up to 3 months (from June to September 2015) while crews raise the overpass structure and to construct the retaining walls east of I-205.
Occasional flaggers will be present in the work zone at each end of Strawberry Lane during construction.
Detour Route during Closure of Strawberry Lane:
- Traffic from east of I-205 will be detoured to travel south on 82nd Drive, north on Oatfield Road and north on Webster Road.
- Traffic from west of I-205 will be detoured to travel south on Webster Road, south on Oatfield Road and north on 82nd Drive.
Traffic Impacts on I-205 during Construction
- The northbound and southbound left and right lanes of I-205 will be closed to traffic at night during the bridge raising and reconstruction of approach grade and embankments.
- The center lane will remain open to traffic.
- Lane closures will only be allowed at night due to high traffic volumes (126,000 vehicles daily) on I-205.
- Two-lane closures on I-205 will be allowed during the following times:
- Weekdays (M-F): 10 p.m. - 5 a.m.
- Weekends: (Fridays): 10 p.m. - 7 a.m.; (Saturdays): 11 p.m. – 8 a.m.; (Sundays): 10 p.m. – 5 a.m.
- One-lane closures on I-205 will be allowed during the following times:
- Weekdays (M-F): 8 p.m. - 5:30 a.m.
- Weekends (Fridays): 8 p.m. - 8 a.m.; (Saturdays): 8 p.m. - 9 a.m.; (Sundays): 8 p.m. - 5:30 a.m.
Noise Impacts during Construction*
Construction activities on I-205 will be necessary during bridge raising. Work is scheduled at night to minimize traffic impacts.
The noise you hear at night will come from heavy equipment, jackhammering, compressors and construction/concrete trucks. You will see construction equipment on I-205 and on Strawberry Lane.
Planned nighttime work activities include:
- Bridge raising
- Setting up traffic control
Nighttime Work Hours:
- Weekdays (M-F): 8 p.m. - 5 a.m.
- Weekends: (Fridays): 8 p.m. - 8 a.m.; (Saturdays): 8 p.m. – 9 a.m.; (Sundays): 8 p.m. – 5:30 a.m.
