Closures and Detours for I-5 Construction in Portland

The Oregon Department of Transportation reports that the second of four full weekend closures of Interstate 5 in one direction between the Marquam Bridge and North Broadway will take place in the southbound direction from midnight Friday night, April 21 until as late as 4:30 a.m. Monday, April 24. The Morrison Bridge will be closed for the same period. Travelers should make plans now to avoid delays on detour routes.

During the I-5 southbound closure, travelers will be diverted to I-405 southbound to reach I-5 south of downtown. A lane of I-5 south will be open for travelers to access I-84 east. Travelers heading in from Washington State could consider using Interstate 205 to avoid congestion in the central city. Travelers should consider using other routes, including surface streets, or taking transit, depending on their travel plans.

The onramp to I-84 east from the Moda Center will be open for fans departing the Blazer playoff game on Saturday, April 22.

The remaining weekend closures of Interstate 5 will take place from 10 p.m. Friday to 4:30 a.m. Monday on the following weekends:

  • Friday, May 5 to Monday, May 8 (northbound)
  • Friday, May 12 to Monday, May 15 (northbound)

Closing I-5 will allow contractor Hamilton Construction to perform concrete repairs underneath the Burnside Bridge, which spans lanes of the freeway. Areas of the concrete are degraded and at risk of falling on the freeway. This work is part of Multnomah County’s Burnside Bridge Maintenance project. The closures will also allow ODOT crews to do work on the closed section of freeway, including paving, survey, electrical, inspection and seismic work.

The Morrison Bridge closure is for a separate Multnomah County project that is replacing the deck on the lift span.

I-5 Construction in Oregon Begins in May

In summer 2017, the Oregon Department of Transportation will repair and resurface two ramps at the Interstate 5 Morrison Bridge interchange and the I-5 bridge over the Rose Quarter Transit Center. The project also will replace the median barrier along I-5 from the Rose Quarter to north of the Hawthorne Bridge. The new barrier will be 10 inches taller than the existing barrier to improve safety of the highway.

When I-5 construction begins in May 2017, there will construction and nighttime noise. Noise will come from heavy equipment, construction trucks, beeping noise when construction vehicles are in reverse (a requirement by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration), and equipment such as concrete saws and dri​lls.

Working at night is necessary to keep daytime traffic flowing on the heavily traveled freeway.

Lane and ramp closures for I-5 construction will take place from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on weekdays and from 11 p.m. to 9 a.m. on weekends. There will be no daytime lane or ramp closures.

Impacts to I-5 & connections to I-84

No full closures of I-5 will take place. This project will require nighttime lane closures on I-5 during bridge and median barrier work.

Ramp closures & detour information

Work on ramps at the Morrison Interchange and work on I-5 will require nighttime ramp closures. Only one ramp will be closed at a time.The impacted ramps and detour information will be provided on this project page soon.
