The #BigFixPDX Continues to Impact Your Drive

We’re now into the third phase of the Big Fix PDX, and  significant delays are underway are happening daily, as ODOT begins major summer construction projects for I-5 & I-84 through August.

Three of the bridges that connect I-5 and I-84 will be closed, at different times, over the next month.  ODOT warns that the delays could last up to three hours at a time, with backups going all the way into the Columbia River Gorge.

Recommendations for dealing with the #BigFixPDX from ODOT include adjusting work schedules, telecommuting, using mass transit and riding a bike to work.  Even better, ODOT suggest just taking a vacation during this time.

The closures:

  1. Friday, July 27 to 5 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 2: Only one lane open on I-84 westbound from Lloyd Center to I-5. The far left lane will remain open during this period.
  2. 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17 to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 27: I-84 westbound to I-5 southbound closed leaving only one lane of I-84 westbound open from Lloyd Center to I-5. The far right lane will remain open during this period.
