The slowdowns will start at midnight to give crews time to install sign bridges
Oct. 31, 2018
PORTLAND – Rolling slowdowns will delay traffic along southbound Interstate 5 Friday and Saturday nights, Nov. 2 and Nov. 3, while crews install sign bridges.
Lane closures will begin Friday night at 9 p.m. with the rolling slowdown beginning around midnight near Southwest Hood Avenue with all traffic open again by 6 a.m. The schedule will repeat on Saturday night.
The slowdowns will give crews a sufficient work window to raise and install sign bridges along I-5 between Nyberg Street and the I-205 interchange.
On-ramps to southbound I-5 will be closed along the route as the rolling slowdown moves past. The times of the ramp closures will vary depending on when the rolling slowdown has passed and if multiple rolling slowdowns are needed.
The schedule will repeat Monday and Tuesday night if additional time is needed to complete the work. If additional nights are needed, all traffic will open by 4:30 a.m. Monday and Tuesday mornings.
