Both ramps from 205 in either direction starting 09/23 to 09/26 for a repaving project before winter. If any of y’all deliver to Portland around that time, you’ll have to get off/onto 84 at I5 in Downtown.

Just thought I’d post that up.

Night yall

Bumping this as a reminder in case anyone reading this will be headed toward Portland on those days.

If you are headed westbound 84, especially plan your route/trip time accordingly!

Ohhhh I’m mad, I seen this post when you made it and didn’t think twice since I was originally planned to NC from Las Vegas, but that didn’t come so they decided to deadhead me to Ogden, UT for a load that delivers near Portland on the 25th… was hoping not to deal with this as I’ll have to go through the area around 1600-1700ish, not sure how bad traffic might be with it being Sunday. But thanks for the bump, it was a good reminder

Deadhead:

To drive with an empty trailer. After delivering your load you will deadhead to a shipper to pick up your next load.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Jamie - normally traffic isn’t too bad on Sunday around that time, it’s not a weekday so most are at home. Not sure how this how this will affect your delivery other than you’ll have to take the round about way to get to Portland. You could exit off on 30/Sandy and take the old state truck route that way in, I’d be sure to have it well planned before you do that.

If you are really nervous about it, you could always go the REAL long way and take 205 to where it ends at joining five North and boogey up the back way in.

I wouldn’t worry too much about Sunday, believe it or not Saturday traffic I have found can be just as bad if not worse at times than weekend traffic, I call it Saturday Rush hour lol…..

Be safe post questions if you need to, I have a late night pick up wit the truck being out for scheduled maintenance today.

Thanks for the information, I actually decided to change my trip plan and park early today, that way by the time I reach the Portland area on the 25th, it’ll be around 0400-0500ish. My appointment isn’t until 1930, just needed to get by there with minimal problems.

Yea, that early you will not have any issues, traffic doesn’t pick up really on a Sunday till 10-1100 and the worst of it is from 0200 to 1700 after that it’s easy- be safe

Jaime - heads up I just went near around affected area.

84 WB heading into Portland is closed, traffic diverted to 205, the closure is a 1.5 mile stretch of 84 EB and WB, to get out of Portland I would take five down to 205 near wilsonville (exit 288) take 205 N and you can get back onto 84 EB via exit 22 from 205, just did that this AM on my way toward Utah.

You may be able to connect 84 WB from 205 after the diversion, follow the signs and detours, it is rather confusing. Not sure where you are delivering/dropping at.
