Interstate 5 - Southwest Capitol Highway to North Lombard Street - Paving and Signs
Project Description: The project will take place on Interstate 5 from Southwest Capitol Highway to North Lombard Street and will include:
- Sign Replacement: Work is under way to begin replacing many of the green highway signs on I-5 from Southwest Corbett Avenue to North Lombard Street and on both decks of the Fremont Bridge (I-405). Existing signs will be updated to meet federal standards; new signs will feature more reflective materials and a less cluttered design, making them easier to read.
- Paving: Starting this spring/summer*, about seven miles of I-5 between Southwest Capitol Highway and the Marquam Bridge will be repaved. The pavement, last replaced in 2004, is deteriorating and needs to be repaired. Transitions to on- and off-ramps will also be repaved and improvements will be made to several bridges.
*Construction is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2015, but work is weather dependent and dates are subject to change.
Traffic Impacts: Expect
single and double lane, shoulder and ramp closures for site preparation, sign
replacement, new sign installation, and paving preparation. ODOT is partnering
with law enforcement for extra presence in the highway construction zone.
FULL CLOSURE of I-5 in both directions between the Marquam Bridge and
I-84 on Thursday, July 9 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. I-5 travelers
will be detoured via I-405. Eastbound

Interstate 5 at Oregon Highway 99W - Southwest Barbur Boulevard
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: Expect periodic
nighttime lane closures on the I-5 northbound truck lane at Southwest Barbur
Boulevard from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., as well as the I-5 southbound left lane (the ramp to Southwest Barbur
Boulevard will remain open). There will also be periodic traffic stops on the
northbound on-ramp from Southwest Barbur Boulevard to I-5.
Drivers should be
aware of construction signage and lane changes since this project will include
periodic nighttime lane closures on I-5 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through
