Improve the safety and lifespan of I-84 by:
- Resurfacing two sections of I-84 with new asphalt or removing ruts in concrete.
- Repaving Exit 10 eastbound on- and off-ramps.
- Repaving sections of the I-205 interchange.
- Resurfacing some bridges.
- Repairing or replacing bridge joints on several structures along I-84.
- Constructing new accessible sidewalk curb ramps at the NE 122nd Avenue on-ramp to I-84 east. This includes a crosswalk closure at the intersection.
- Reconfiguring the northbound signal at NE 238th Drive with two dedicated left-turn lanes onto I-84 west.
I-205 to 169th Avenue and from just east of 201st Avenue to Marine Drive (exit 17)
Cost and Funding
Project cost : $14,184,257
Smooth highway surfaces improve safety for travelers by reducing safety risks caused by rutting, especially during rain. Resurfacing bridges and replacing bridge joints increases the safety and life of the structures. Reconfiguring the signal on northbound 238th will improve safety by reducing crashes.
The Columbia River Gorge is one of Oregon’s seven wonders – home to the first highway in the Pacific Northwest, sweeping vistas and rich history. And for more than 100 years, it’s been an important corridor for freight movements, both in the water and on the road.
Over the next several years, we have many construction projects planned on Interstate 84 between Interstate 205 and Hood River, and on the Historic Columbia River Highway between Troutdale and Hood River.
Each project brings benefits to residents, businesses and visitors by increasing safety, extending the lifespan of the highways or completing a gap in walking and biking infrastructure.
