As of Friday, July 12, 2013
Folks heading to Portland this weekend — and two other weekends this summer — may face major traffic snarls.
Eastbound Interstate 84 will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, July 12, (tonight) to 5 a.m. Monday, July 15 as eastbound Interstate 84 between I-5 and I-205 is closed as a summer-long paving project in that area shifts into high year.
Travelers heading eastbound in Portland should expect delays and congestion on alternate routes, an Oregon Department of Transportation announcement said.
Two other full closures are planned, all from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday:
• July 19-July 22 for westbound grinding and paving,
• Aug. 3-Aug. 5 for westbound sign installation and restriping.
In addition to the weekend closures, the contractor is allowed four full weeknight closures, if needed.
