Girder Installation Complete over I-205
The ODOT contractor completed the girder installation over the north and southbound lanes of I-205 on Jan. 26. The girders are the support beams for a new overpass which will connect SE 82nd Drive with SE 82nd Avenue. Girders were installed at night over on two weekends, Jan. 17-19 and Jan. 24-26, 2014.
In the future, there will be occasional nighttime-only single and double lane closures of I-205 to complete the work on this part of the project. You can log onto Tripcheck for more information each Saturday.
This photo, taken Jan. 21, shows the girders over the northbound lanes of I-205 prior to the girder installation over the southbound lanes of I-205.
The view is looking south with the northbound on-ramp from 82nd Drive at the bottom of the photo and 82nd Avenue at the top.
