Project Overview
Sandy River bridge project
ODOT is replacing two aging Interstate 84 bridges over the Sandy River and repairing two bridges over Jordan Road to keep traffic moving safely through the I-84 corridor. The new Sandy River bridges will feature a rock façade on the piers and abutments and decorative pylons consistent with the I-84 Corridor Strategy Design Guidelines. The eastbound bridge over the Sandy River will include a combined bicycle and pedestrian crossing that will accommodate local users.
This is a very active construction area. The public is asked to watch for flaggers and to steer clear of the work area. Parking and recreational access along the Sandy River and Jordan Road will be affected. Available parking will be reduced.
Project information paper
Boaters: watch for navigation hazards, use channel markers
The western channel under the bridge is open. Watch for piers marked by buoys in the waterway and use the marked navigation channel near the west bank. ODOT also installed channel navigation lights on the bridge for boater safety. The navigation lights point boaters to the opening over the main channel between the west bank and the sandbar.
Steer clear of the eastern channel, which remains closed due to construction activity. Approach the bridge area with caution and watch for floating debris, submerged hazards and changing conditions. Be aware of the weather and winter river conditions as either can change without warning.

Sign up for Public Alerts to ensure timely emergency notification
Multnomah County uses an automated “reverse 911” alert and notification system that can advise residents of an emergency through their telephone landlines. While this service will reach any person with access to their landline at the time of the call, it’s become increasingly common for people to carry only cellular telephone service.
To ensure the county can reach you with an emergency message, sign up for Public Alerts – an optional service that allows you to add your email, cell phone number and additional contact information to the secure contact database. Through Public Alerts, you can receive notification emails and text messages, and be contacted at multiple phone numbers, which increases the likelihood that you’ll receive timely notice of floods or other events.
