Project Details

I-205 and I-84: Center Barrier Installation Project

Construction Phase

Region 1: Portland metro and Hood River County (Oregon City, Portland, Troutdale, Tualatin, Clackamas, Multnomah, Washington)


​​Construction started Dec. 19, 2016 on a project to place barriers in open areas between the north and southbound lanes of Interstate 205 and the east and westbound lanes of Interstate 84. This work is part of a statewide effort to improve safety by reducing head-on and crossover crashes.

Impacts

Traffic Impact

​Anticipated traffic impacts during construction will include night time single lane closures in each direction. While lane closures will only occur at night, median and shoulder work can take place during the day.

Schedule

​Construction: December 2016 through Fall 2017.

About

ODOT is installing either guard rail, concrete barrier and cable barrier that will be installed, each dependent on specific site conditions.  

Cable barrier, however, will make up the majority of the installation. Cable median barrier has proven effective across the nation, and here in Oregon, at reducing the number and severity of crossover crashes.  It is considered a cost-effective barrier with a construction cost of approximately $15 per foot, compared to $80 per foot for concrete barrier.
