This information reflects the most recent data available at the start of project design. In spring 2020 we saw a decrease in traffic volumes on I-205 due to Covid-19 and traffic volumes have been steadily rising since.
The project reduces crashes and daily congestion by 4.75 hours each day by adding a third lane in each direction with shoulders that could accommodate future transit opportunities.
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.
