Improving Travel For All in the Rose Quarter

Congestion I-5

Three Interstates (I-5, I-84, and I-405) intersect in the short distance between the Morrison Bridge and the Fremont Bridge in northeast Portland, creating the biggest bottleneck in the state of Oregon. The closely spaced interchanges and very narrow shoulders have resulted in this section of I-5 having the highest crash rate in the state. By building new ramp-to-ramp connections and full shoulders, the I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project can reduce frequent crashes in this area, improving safety and reliability for travelers.

Find out how these improvements can make your trip safer and more reliable.

Each month, we'll be sharing up-to-date information on the project with you through this newsletter. Each newsletter will highlight a different element of the project, such as highway improvements, facilities for those who walk and bike, opportunities for covers over the highway and more. We'll also keep you in the loop about upcoming events and other ways to get involved in the project.

The I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project was created by the local community, City of Portland and ODOT working together to plan for changes coming in the future of inner north and northeast Portland. By building new separated bike lanes and wider sidewalks, improving the highway and creating new roadway connections, the project will create a better connected community, a more reliable I-5 and support economic growth.

Project Timeline

Timeline High Res

The project is currently in an environmental study and public engagement stage to fully understand the benefits and impacts of this project. The project team will publish the environmental study findings in late fall 2018, followed by a 30-day public review and comment period. More design work and community involvement will continue after this stage.
