ODOT crews will close Interstate 5 northbound at the ramp to the Marquam Bridge from 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17 to 5 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 18. The closure will allow crews to conduct electrical repairs and inspection work for a project that will rehabilitate all ramps that connect Interstate 84 to I-5 in the summer of 2018.
During the closure, travelers heading northbound or to I-84 eastbound will take I-405 northbound to the Fremont Bridge to reach their destination.
The following on-ramps will also close to keep travelers out of the work zone:
•I-5 northbound Macadam Avenue on-ramp
•I-405 southbound ramp to I-5 northbound
•I-405 southbound Broadway on-ramp
•I-405 southbound Fifth Street on-ramp
I-84 at I-5 ramp multi-day closures coming in 2018
Friday night's work includes inspecting the ramp that connects I-5 northbound to I-84 eastbound in preparation for a project in the summer of 2018. Rehabilitating the ramps will require an up to a two-week, around-the-clock closure of each ramp that connects I-84 and I-5. Only one ramp will close at a time, however, commuters and travelers in 2018 will experience extreme delays and should consider making alternate plans that avoid using I-84.
