This project is a major upgrade to one of the Portland area’s most congested sections of freeway. The project will improve safety and operations on I-205 between Johnson Creek Boulevard and Glenn Jackson Bridge. Work will include repaving approximately nine miles of I-205 in both directions, ramps and intersections; building auxiliary lanes in three locations; installing ODOT RealTime signs and improving sidewalk curb ramps within the project area. Under House Bill 2017, finishing the I-205 project on time is key to unlocking new gas tax revenues under the massive, $5.3 billion transportation funding plan approved by lawmakers this year. The bill increases gas taxes by 4 cents in January, to 34 cents per gallon. But to get an additional 2-cent gas tax bump, the I-205 project must be completed by Dec. 1, 2019. Kerr Contractors will be complete this critical project to ensure Oregon’s future infrastructure funding.
