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