The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the City of Portland are continuing to study and design improvements to I-5 between I-84 and I-405 and local streets in the Rose Quarter area of Portland.
With high traffic volumes, closely spaced interchanges, and no shoulders, I-5 at the Rose Quarter has the highest crash rate in Oregon. With this project, we can reduce frequent crashes, improving safety and reliability for travelers.
The I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project creates new connections across I-5 and more space for people walking and biking, so everyone can travel more safely and conveniently through the Rose Quarter area.
The I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project is currently in an environmental study and public engagement stage to fully understand the benefits and impacts of this project. The environmental study findings will be published in early 2019, followed by a 30-day public comment period. More design work and community involvement will continue after this stage.
