I-5 Bridge Over SW 26th Ave

Drawing of new bridge

Oregon Department of Transportation will replace the current bridge with a new, improved structure and upgrade SW 26th Avenue with better lighting, bike lanes and sidewalks.

Beginning in 2023, SW 26th Avenue will be fully closed to motor vehicles directly under I-5 for about a year. Businesses on SW Barbur Court and homes on SW 26th Avenue will still be accessible.

People walking, biking and rolling will have access under I-5 for almost all of the project.

Gravel Street Service

Portland has over 50 miles of gravel streets which are not maintained by the city. As a result, those streets were in bad shape, with large potholes and ruts. Until the launch of the Gravel Street Service in 2018, PBOT did not have many options to help residents who were unhappy with the condition of their roads. Thanks to the new program, however, PBOT can offer a cost-effective solution for making these gravel roads better. Even better, the service is FREE for residents.
