ORE43, Intersection with Mount Hood Highway US26 MP 0 - 3
Closure with Detour
Project Description: ODOT will repair and upgrade the ramp connecting Oregon Highway 43 (SW Macadam Avenue) over I-5 to SW Kelly and SW Hood avenues in August 2016. Rebar shows through the ramp deck. Rehabilitation will maintain the roadway and avoid complete replacement. ODOT also will replace a damaged traffic barrier and repave a section of roadway that connects to SW Hood Avenue. About 15,000 vehicles use this roadway on average each day to access downtown Portland and the Ross Island Bridge. *Note: this is the ramp that connects to the Ross Island Bridge and I-5 south via SW Hood Avenue and to Portland City Center via SW Kelly Avenue. Traffic Impacts: The ramp connecting Oregon Highway 43 (SW Macadam Ave) over I-5 to SW Kelly Ave and SW Hood Ave and northbound Exit 299 A will be closed all hours (day and night), seven days a week from Aug. 14-31. Additional nighttime closures may occur Aug. 9-13 and Sept. 1-3. Northbound TriMet bus lines 35 and 36 (SW Macadam and Tram Tower stop) will be affected by the closure and bus stops in the closure area will be temporarily detoured and relocated. Please visit www.TriMet.org for the latest information on stops and closures. Southbound stops are not affected.
