I-84: Hood River Bridges Repair

Construction Phase

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

​Construction begins in March to repair and replace bridge decks on the structures carrying I-84 over Hood River (between Exit 63 and Exit 64). Repairing these aging structures will increase their lifespan, allow them to continue carrying I-84 traffic safely and smooth out the ride for travelers. ​


Traffic Impact

Check​ for up-to-date traffic impacts during construction. ​

March 5, 2020 update:
One lane of I-84 east is closed 24/7 between Exit 63 and Exit 64. Expect nighttime lane closures and ramp closures in both directions the week of March 9-13. 

General traffic impacts:

I-84 east and west impacts
  • During each phase of construction, one lane in both directions of I-84 will be closed 24/7. 
  • Travelers in both directions should watch for traffic shifts with reduced lane and shoulder widths.
  • Speed limits in the work zone will be reduced to 50 mph during construction. 
I-84 ramp closures
  • On- and off-ramps at Exit 63 (toward Hood River City Center) and 
  • Exit 64 (toward Oregon 35, White Salmon and Government Camp), will be periodically closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Thursday nights, primarily at the beginning and end of each phase. Travelers should use an alternate route. 
Pedestrian and cyclist impacts
  • Cyclists using the shoulder of I-84 will need to use an alternate route during construction. Pedestrians and cyclists can continue using 2nd Street, the Hood River Waterfront Trail and the Slough Trail during construction with minor delays.
Nighttime Noise
  • Work may take place at night and those working or living in the area may hear the noise. 


Construction is scheduled to begin in March 2020 and continue through summer 2021.

Work will take place in phases to minimize impacts during the peak summer travel season. 
  • Phase 1: March through May 2020
  • Phase 2: September through November 2020.
  • Phase 3: January through May 2021.
  • In between phases, traffic impacts will be minimized, but some work may still occur.



This project includes: 
  • Replacing the bridge deck on the structure carrying eastbound I-84. 
  • Repairing the bridge deck on the structure carrying westbound I-84. 
  • Upgrading the lighting under I-84 on the slough trail.
