I-5 MP 195.45 to 195.46

Informational only; Construction Work
Lanes Affected: (Southbound) 3 Lanes (Northbound) 3 Lanes
Comments: The posted speed limit has been reduced to 35 on the Beltline bridge and 50 on Interstate 5 near the interchange due to construction work zone. New, lower speed limits have been implemented on the Randy Papé Beltline bridge over Interstate 5, and on I-5 beneath the bridge where construction has begun on a two-year project to improve the I-5/Beltline interchange. Beginning Wednesday, April 17, 2013, the posted, enforceable speed limit on the Beltline bridge over I-5 will be 35 miles per hour. The speed limit on I-5 near the interchange will be reduced to 50 miles per hour. The speed limit reductions will be enforced until the project is completed in fall of 2014. The speed limit reductions are intended to improve work zone safety for all highway users and construction workers. From 2007 through 2011 in Oregon, 53 people died and more than 2,200 were injured in work zone crashes. The majority of people injured or killed in these crashes were drivers, passengers or pedestrians, not workers. The single biggest factor in crashes is driver inattention; that’s why orange cones, variable message signs and other tools are used to alert motorists. The other major contributing factor is speed, which is why work zones often require lower speed limits. National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 16-19.
