Work on a stormwater management project will close one northbound traffic lane and the right shoulder on Interstate 5 this Wednesday night through Thursday morning. The I-5 northbound shoulder and lane closure will start about three quarters of a mile north of exit 295, the Taylors Ferry Road exit.
The closure will begin at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 13. The northbound lane and shoulder will re-open at 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 14.
The work is part of a project to collect and treat stormwater runoff from the freeway to protect Tryon Creek water quality. Environmental Services is working with the Oregon Department of Transportation on the stormwater management project.
