The project is completing final design and moving to construction in the Summer on 2019.
The project will construct a new bridge to elevate North Rivergate Blvd over the Union Pacific RR tracks crossing the roadway. Currently rail operations block North Rivergate Blvd for long time periods causing traffic congestion affecting one of the region’s largest industrial area. In 2016 the Port of Portland received a grant from the U.S Department of Transportation’s TIGER program to construct an overcrossing on N. Rivergate Blvd. The project has also received funding from Metro, the Oregon Department of Transportation and City of Portland Transportation System Development Charges.
Construction begins: July 2019
North Rivergate Blvd closes to traffic: September 2019
North Rivergate Overcrossing opens: December 2020
Project Complete: March 2021
