Concrete repairs on I-205 begin Sunday

By Eric Florip, Columbian Transportation & Environment Reporter



Oregon Department of Transportation crews on Sunday night will begin concrete repairs on a long stretch of Interstate 205 between West Linn, Ore., and northeast Portland. The work is expected to cause nightly delays and lane closures.

Workers will repair concrete approaches to bridges as far north as Airport Way in Portland. The work will require multiple lane closures from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., but closures will only take place in one direction of I-205 at a time, according to ODOT. At least one lane in either direction will remain open at all times.

The work is expected to continue through September.
