I-5 Southbound On-Ramp Relocation
Due to the short distance between the I-5 southbound on-ramp at NE Wheeler and the I-84 off-ramp, vehicles have to make quick maneuvers within a short distance, resulting in increased crashes and congestion. To improve safety and operations, the I-5 southbound on-ramp will be relocated from NE Wheeler Avenue to NE Weidler Street. Closing the on-ramp at NE Wheeler and building a new ramp further north connecting at NE Weidler will create more space and time to merge on and off the highway. This ramp relocation will improve travel on surrounding streets by providing a more direct connection to the highway. The relocation also will provide space needed for the new Clackamas bicycle and pedestrian crossing.
