Interstate 84 will close in both directions at the Interstate 205 interchange for 24-hours the weekend of Jan. 7 for TriMet’s A Better Red construction. 

I-84 west closed at I-205. I-84 east closed at Exit 6.

TriMet’s MAX improvements include building an additional set of tracks, two new bridges, a new track crossing, Red line station platform and a multi-use path near the Gateway Transit Center.

The new tracks will reduce delays that happen when trains traveling in both directions have to wait for oncoming trains to pass. With the Gateway Transit Center serving MAX Blue, Green and Red lines, helping Red Line trains move more efficiently will also keep trains on time elsewhere in the light rail system.

Here are the closure details:

  • Interstate 84 will close in both directions near the Interstate 205 interchange from 4 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 7, until 4 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 8, for work on TriMet’s A Better Red MAX reliability and extension project. I-84 west will close at I-205 (exit 9) and travelers can use I-205 south as an alternate route. I-84 east will close at Exit 6.
  • The Northeast 102nd Avenue on-ramp to I-84 west and I-84 east Exit 7 Halsey/99nd Ave off ramp will also be closed.
  • This closure is weather dependent and the schedule is subject to change. 

Drivers should plan for delays and take an alternate route or public transit.
