FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PORTLAND, ORE. (May 23, 2014) – Mt. Hood Avenue Overpass Work Begins Tuesday

Ramp construction on the Mt. Hood Avenue Overpass at Northeast Airport Way, which leads to Cascade Station, will begin Tuesday. Motorists should plan for traffic delays and detours through early November.

Through early July, the ramp will close from westbound Airport Way to southbound Mt. Hood Avenue and Cascade Station. Road signs will direct motorists to the detour route. The overall project will remove and replace the existing degraded asphalt with concrete on all on- and off-ramps serving the overpass.

Meanwhile, construction continues on the roadway serving the front of the PDX terminal building. To reduce the impact on motorists, much of the work is taking place at night. However, motorists should plan for some traffic delays and minor detours occurring even during the day. Motorists can avoid traffic congestion by using airport parking garages, which remain open at all times.

The terminal roadway project, which runs through mid-September, is rehabilitating the worn asphalt surface on the upper and lower roadways closest to the PDX terminal building, as well as the lanes leading up to the terminal. On the lower roadway, work is replacing asphalt bus lanes with concrete.

Motorists will find updates on these projects at www.pdx.com and on Twitter @flypdx.
