ODOT breaks ground on the I-205 Abernethy Bridge

View all


The first phase of the I-205 Improvements Project begins construction this month and crews will initially work around the Abernethy Bridge. The Jon Storm Park parking lot under the bridge in Oregon City closed on May 31, 2022, and will remain closed through 2025. People should anticipate additional impacts to bike and pedestrian paths along OR 99, along with river impacts, such as no wake zones, during construction.

To stay informed about the latest construction and traffic information, we encourage the community to sign up to receive email and text alerts here. For additional information, please visit the I-205 Improvements Project website or visit Tripcheck.com.

ODOT will host several community events within the project area and will hold two in-person open houses. ODOT will also create a recorded presentation that includes information provided at the open houses. Please stop by an event to learn about the project and construction-related impacts. Event details can be found on the project website.
