I-82 and I-84: Umatilla-Pendleton Concrete Pavement Repair

Design Phase

Region 5: Eastern Oregon (Umatilla)

​​​Repair pavement to extend the life of the highway surface on all lanes, repair and repave asphalt shoulders, and bridge repairs on eight structures to increase safety.



​Design 2021-2023.

Goes to bid early 2024.

Construction summer 2024.



Existing pavement was constructed in 1968 and is one of the oldest remaining original interstate sections still in service. There are intermittent locations with crumbling concrete and cracks. The asphalt shoulders are thin and in poor condition. Without replacement, maintenance cannot keep up with repairs.

Work will include the following elements.
Pavement repairs:
We will repair existing pavement and repave asphalt shoulders.
Repairs will be made on eastbound and westbound routes. Work will occur mostly in the right lanes, with some work affecting left lanes.
  • ​I-84: from the Umatilla River crossing at milepost 188 to the Barnhart Interchange near milepost 204.
  • I-82: from the Oregon/Washington state line at milepost 0.0 to the I-84 Interchange at milepost 11.
Bridge repairs:
Work includes repairing bridge decks and approaches, concrete rails and bridge joints.
  • I-84: from the I-82 Interchange at milepost 179 to the Nolin Grade Road overpass at milepost 195.
Guardrail repairs:
We will upgrade guardrail on I-84, between mileposts 179 and 204.


Multiple |
  • I-84 | ​mileposts 179 to 203.
  • ​I-82 | mileposts 0-11.

Cost and Funding

The project is estimated to cost $13.1 million.

What Problem Will This Improve?

​Current issues include:

    Image of repaired punchout.
  1. ​Large cracks, punchouts, and failing construction joints need to be repaired in many locations. A punchout is the separation of a block of concrete from the rest of the slab. See image.​
  2. Road shoulders are also in poor condition and wide cracks allow weeds to grow.
  3. Significant ruts in travel lanes, associated with wear from studded tires, poses a potential safety risk during rain.
