Over 100,000 vehicles a day use the seven-mile stretch of I-205 from Stafford Road to OR 213 in Oregon City. This bottleneck is the last two-lane section of I-205 and drivers experience nearly seven hours of traffic backups and congestion each day.
We are addressing these issues with the I-205 Improvements Project, which is part of a regional Urban Mobility Strategy. The I-205 Improvements Project is intended to reduce congestion and crashes, while also making travel times shorter and more predictable. Project improvements will also allow I-205 to remain open and passable following a major earthquake.
Additional travel lane in each direction will make travel faster and more predictable.
Improved interchanges and on- and off-ramps will make travel safer, resulting in fewer crashes.
The Abernethy Bridge and eight other I-205 bridges will be upgraded or replaced to withstand a major earthquake. An earthquake-ready corridor will support this critical lifeline route in providing supplies and services to the region after a disaster.

Widening I-205 in the first phase of the project area to allow a third travel lane in each direction. The final lane configuration will be completed in a future phase.
Project design and the first phase of the project are fully funded. Phase 1 will use financing tools recently approved by the Oregon Legislature. Toll revenue is needed to complete future phases the I-205 Improvements Project and could be used to pay back the funds borrowed for the Abernethy Bridge. The Toll Program is working to create a system that works for all travelers and local neighbors. Get involved and learn more about the I-205 Toll Project »
The I-205 Improvements Project team regularly distributes a project newsletter and press releases, along with email and text message alerts about construction-related detours and other issues. We’re also available to attend community meetings to provide project updates. Please sign up for email and text message alerts and email us today if you’d like to schedule a briefing.
