Project Details

I-84: Hood River Bridges Repair

Design Phase

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

This project will replace the bridge deck on eastbound I-84 over Hood River, as well as resurfacing the westbound direction bridge. The bridges were built in 1953 and have needed several repairs to the decks over the years to keep them operating and ensure that travelers can reach their destinations.

The project will make I-84 safer for all travelers and extend the life of the highway, which is an important route for interstate traffic, as well as local and business traffic.​​​​​


Construction Impacts

​Efforts will be made to reduce construction impacts for travelers during the busy summer months or over holiday weekends. No lane closures will occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2020 or on holiday's or holiday weekends.


​​Construction is expected to take place from January 2020 until June 2021.



​​The bridge over Hood River on I-84 was built in 1953. As an old bridge, the concrete on the bridge deck is deteriorating and needs to be repaired. 

The bridge is made of two separate bridges, one for eastbound and the other for westbound traffic. During the construction work, efforts will be made to reduce impacts to the Slough Pedestrian and Bike Trail that is located below the bridge.

The project will include the following: 

  • Eastbound bridge - replace the six-inch deck with a thicker deck and strengthened steel girders. 
  • Construction impacts will require one lane of traffic in each direction (EB & WB) to be closed for staging. The auxiliary lanes will remain open under daytime work. 
  • There will be intermittent night-time closures of the auxiliary lanes and closure of I-84 entrance and exit ramps at Exit 63 and 64, with a detour available, to perform construction of bridge temporary containment and paving and striping work off the bridge ends.
