The closures on connecting sections of I-5 and I-84 will start
at 10 p.m. Friday and continue until 5 a.m. Monday. The work zones
will be: Westbound I-84 from I-205 to I-5, a distance of 5.5 miles.
(The eastbound lanes of I-84 will be repaved the following weekend,
Aug. 10-11) and Northbound I-5 from the I-84 Interchange to the
Fremont Bridge. That work will skip the following weekend and wrap
up with a closure on the weekend of Aug. 17-18.
The detour for the I-5 work is via I-405. For the I-84 closures
use Northeast Lombard Street (also known as Old Portland Highway),
Northeast Sandy Boulevard and Southeast Powell Boulevard. To accommodate
the detoured traffic, Portland has recalibrated traffic signals
and asks that drivers not cut through residential neighborhoods.
