Interstate 205

Aug. 9 - Aug. 16, 2014 *

*Schedules are subject to change due to weather and site conditions. 
Interstate 205 NE Airport Way Interchange
Project Description: This project will help improve traffic flow at this busy interchange by constructing a new free-flowing on-ramp from NE Airport Way westbound onto I-205 northbound.  Motorists on NE Airport Way eastbound will have two left turn lanes onto I-205 northbound and will no longer have to share signal time with westbound motorists on NE Airport Way.
Traffic Impacts:  Minimal lane closures Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on eastbound and westbound NE Airport Way.   

Please note:
There may also be occasional daytime short-duration closures of the I-205 multi-use bicycle/pedestrian path on the north side of Airport Way, Monday- Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for construction work next to the path. Flaggers will stop trail users for less than 20 minutes at a time.
Expect intermittent sidewalk closures on NE Airport Way while the contractor is working in the project area.

Repairing bridge approaches take place from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Aug. 11-Aug. 19
A contractor for ODOT will repair several approach panels to bridges 15 bridges on Interstate 205 between Airport Way and Stafford Road. The work will take place at night starting as early as 8 p.m. All lanes will open by 5:30 p.m. This work is weather dependent and could be rescheduled due to rain.

The nights of Monday, Aug. 11 through Thursday, Aug. 14, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning, the contractor will close lanes on I-205 between Stafford Road and the Abernethy Bridge. Lane closures will take place in one-direction at a time. One lane will always remain open on I-205.
Here is the contractor's current schedule for ramp closures for bridge approach work:
Friday, Aug. 15 from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 16
  • Interstate 84 eastbound off-ramp to I-205 northbound
  • I-205 southbound ramp to I-84 eastbound
  • I-205 southbound ramp paving at Airport Way closes the left lane of the off-ramp
Monday, Aug. 18 from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 19
  • I-84 eastbound ramp to I-205 northbound
Tuesday, Aug. 19 from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20
  • Airport Way westbound and eastbound on-ramps to I-205 southbound
During the ramp closures, detour signs will direct travelers.
Currently the approaches to these 15 bridges along I-205 are rutted and damaged due to wear. After this work is finished, travelers will encounter a smoother ride and the bridges will be preserved.
