FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PORTLAND, ORE. (May 8, 2014) – Airport Roadway Work Begins May 12

Construction work will soon give the PDX terminal roadway and the Mt. Hood Avenue overpass ramps a much needed facelift. Motorists should expect some traffic delays and detours and allow themselves extra time to reach their destinations.

PDX Terminal Roadway—Work begins May 12 on the roadway serving the front of the PDX terminal building. The project, which runs through mid-September, will rehabilitate 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 will also replace asphalt bus lanes with concrete.

To reduce the impact on motorists, much of the work is planned at night. However, motorists should plan for some traffic delays and minor detours occurring even during the day. Access will remain at all times to both airport parking garages and the rental car return area.

Mt. Hood Avenue Overpass Ramps—From approximately late May through early November, work will remove and replace the existing degraded asphalt with concrete on all on- and off-ramps serving the overpass. The overpass is part of an interchange on Northeast Airport Way at Cascade Station. Motorists should plan for traffic delays and detours.

Information for Motorists—For both projects, roadway construction signage is planned to alert motorists of delays and outline any detour routes. Motorists will also find project updates at www.pdx.com and on Twitter @flypdx.
