Public Invited to Comment on Recommended I-5 Broadway/Weidler Interchange Improvements, June 7 @ 5:30 p.m.

The N/NE Quadrant Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) has been working for over a year and a half to address safety and operations issues that affect all modes of transportation travelling through the I-5 Broadway/Weidler Interchange and surrounding local streets. Their work will culminate at a June 7 meeting, when recommended improvements to the area will be presented in a draft I-5 Facility Plan. The public is invited to attend and comment on the proposal.

Main Elements of the Recommended I-5 Broadway/Weidler Interchange Improvements

The draft I-5 Facility Plan includes a detailed description and illustrations of the recommended improvements to the areas, including:

  • Extend auxiliary lanes and full-width shoulders in both directions (within existing right-of-way).
  • Reconstruct structures at Broadway, Weidler, Vancouver and Williams in their current alignment and add a lid over the freeway.
  • Move the I-5 southbound on-ramp from Wheeler/Winning Way to Weidler.
  • Convert Williams to reverse traffic flow with a center bike/pedestrian lane between Broadway and Weidler.
  • Construct a new pedestrian/bike overcrossing at Clackamas Street.
  • Remove the Flint structure and add a new east-west overcrossing extending from Hancock to Dixon.

After hearing public comments on the draft I-5 Facility Plan, the SAC will discuss the plan and potentially take action to endorse the plan.

A similar opportunity for public comment on the draft N/NE Quadrant Plan will be provided at the June 28 SAC meeting.

For more information about the draft I-5 Facility Plan, please contact Todd Juhasz, ODOT Project Manager at 503-731-4753.
