Name: I-205 Widening & Seismic Improvements Open House
Date: June 5, 2018
Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM PDT
Event Description:
The I-205 Widening and Seismic Improvement project will address congestion and traveler safety issues on a seven-mile stretch of I-205 between Stafford Road and OR 213. 

The addition of a third lane in each direction from Stafford Road to OR 213 helps prevent bottlenecks that cause congestion and crashes, which create delays for travelers and freight. Extending the I-205 northbound on-ramp across the Abernethy Bridge increases safety and travel-time predictability. Also, seismically upgrading the Abernethy Bridge and replacing or retrofitting eight bridge sites in the project area ensures bridges can withstand a major earthquake. 

The project continues to progress, and some of the latest developments include:
  • OR 43 Interchange Design The project will remove the current I-205 northbound on-ramp from OR 43. Instead, a new roundabout will provide the northbound access to I-205. 
  • Noise Walls Analysis The project team is analyzing the potential need for noise walls at some locations in the project area. More information will be provided in the summer 2018.
  • Cost-to-Complete Report This report provides ODOT's plan to complete this project. The report was approved by the Oregon Transportation Commission and delivered to the Oregon Legislature in January 2018. Read the report at
  • Open Houses and Online Open House Scheduled The project is hosting two open houses on June 5 in West Linn and on June 6 in Oregon City. Drop by to talk to the project team and learn more about the project. If you can't make it, an online open house will be available from June 5 to June 22.
