I-5: Paving (Interstate Bridge to Moda Center)

Construction Phase

Region 1: Portland metro and Hood River County (Portland)


The Oregon Department of Transportation started a project in June 2018 to repave approximately six miles of Interstate 5 and exit and entrance ramps between the Interstate Bridge and the Moda Center. The project will also replace and upgrade existing signs on the mainline and on exit ramps, upgrade ADA ramps and replace the median barrier on the Hayden Island Bridge and near the North Broadway exit. Get the dates, detour maps and learn more at our online open house.​​
