Interstate 5
April 19 - 26, 2014*
 
*Schedules are subject to change due to weather and site conditions.
 
Interstate 5 at SW Hood Avenue Bridge
 
Project Description: Construction is underway on a seismic retrofit project for five bridges along the Interstate 5 corridor between Portland’s South Waterfront district and the Tualatin River. Retrofitting the state’s older bridges to meet modern seismic specifications will help ensure I-5 would not be immobilized in the event Oregon experiences a powerful earthquake.
 
Traffic Impacts: The I-5 bridge work over SW Hood Avenue in South Waterfront requires a 24-hour single lane closure on SW Hood Avenue under the I-5 bridge for approximately 12 months. Due to this lane closure, road users are not permitted to continue straight on SW Bancroft Street from SW Hood Avenue. All traffic on SW Hood Avenue will be required to either turn right or left on SW Macadam Avenue. A fully signed detour is in place directing road users back to SW Bancroft Street via SW Macadam Avenue, SW Curry Street and SW Moody Avenue.

Interstate 5 at Haines Road Exit
 
Project Description: The required road improvements include widening OR 99W southbound to include a new lane and sidewalk, a landscaped center median and widening the OR 217 northbound off-ramp to S.W. 72nd Avenue. This construction project is being done by a private contractor and is required by the City of Tigard for the development of a WalMart store on Dartmouth Street along OR 99W. A contractor for WalMart will make the required road improvements. Lanes will not close during daytime hours.
 
Traffic Impacts: Daytime lane restrictions will occur at the intersection of the southbound I-5 on and off- ramps at 68th Avenue for crosswalk work Monday through Friday start at approximately 9 a.m. and will end by 3:30 p.m.
