I-5 paving projects shuts southbound lanes all weekend

Are you ready for a hot and slow ride through Portland this weekend? ODOT will close all southbound lanes of Interstate 5 from the Fremont Bridge to Interstate 84 at 10 p.m. Friday, July 13. During the closure crews will grind down and repave the freeway. Lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 16. The whole process repeats next weekend, July 20-23.

Traffic will be diverted onto I-405 southbound over the Fremont Bridge to rejoin I-5 south of the Marquam Bridge. The ramp from westbound Interstate 84 onto southbound I-5 will remain open on both weekends. With drivers headed to I-84 eastbound already diverted onto I-405 during that ramp's closure, driving south through Portland should be very congested.
