I-5 northbound lanes to be restricted and diverted
/ Source: KMTR-TV

EUGENE / SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (ODOT) - The northbound Interstate 5 on-ramp from eastbound OR 569 (Randy Papé Beltline) will be closed overnight Monday, June 24. In addition, northbound I-5 traffic will be restricted to a single lane which will be diverted in the construction zone.   Beginning at 8 PM Monday, June 24 and continuing until 5 AM Tuesday, June 25, eastbound Beltline motorists will access northbound I-5 by traveling east on Beltline to Gateway Street then north to Game Farm Road, then west to Coburg Road, then north to Pearl Street, Coburg, then east to I-5.   Also overnight Monday, northbound I-5 will be reduced to a single lane under the Beltline bridge. The lane will be diverted toward the median to allow the contractor the ability to demolish part of the Beltline bridge over the northbound lanes. The lane diversion should not result in any significant delay on I-5.   The work is associated with the I-5 / Beltline Unit 3 project, a two-year project funded by the 2009 Jobs and Transportation Act (HB 2001), approved by the Oregon Legislature. K & E Excavating, Inc. of Salem was awarded the low-bid contract of $13.368 million. Construction is scheduled for completion in November 2014.   This is the third phase of improvements to make the interchange safer and more efficient. In 2013 and 2014, the project will construct: A new southbound I-5 to westbound Beltline off-ramp A new southbound I-5 to eastbound Beltline off-ramp A new westbound Beltline to southbound I-5 on-ramp A new Beltline Bridge over I-5 with an additional eastbound lane A new dedicated right turn lane for eastbound Beltline to southbound Gateway Base construction and structures for a new multi-use path to connect south of the interchange to north of the interchange. The path is to open upon completion of Unit 4 in 2016. Know before you go  Motorists have several options for getting up-to-date travel information on the project. ODOT’s Web site, www.tripcheck.com will list any impacts to the I-5  /Beltline interchange.   Point-2-Point Solutions offers the latest road delay information and any bike route impacts for the Gateway area on www.keepusmoving.info.   To learn more about the project, visit the project website: http://oregonjta.org/region2/?p=i5-beltline&expandable=3
