I-205 Paving

I-5 to Abernethy Bridge

About the project

Work is underway. ODOT is repaving the nine-mile stretch of roadway on I-205 between the I-5 interchange in Tualatin and the south end of the Abernethy Bridge in West Linn. The pavement on I-205 in this area, last repaved in 2006, is now deteriorating and in need of repair.

The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.

Project details

The project includes these key elements:

  • ADA-compliant sidewalk curb ramp improvements on 10th St. (between 8th Court and Blankenship) in West Linn. While the curb ramps on the west side of 10th St. are under construction, the sidewalk will be closed, pedestrians will be routed to a protected walkway on the east side sidewalk.
  • Resurfacing the pavement on 10th Street under I-205.
  • Repaving the OR 43 interchange loop and improving sidewalk curb ramps to meet ADA standards. While the curb ramps on the west side of the loop are under construction, the sidewalk will be closed and pedestrians will be routed to the east side sidewalk.
  • Resurfacing the I-205 bridges that cross over SW Woodbine Road and SW Borland Road.
  • Replacing existing rumble strips on I-205.
