Portland metro Monday Traffic: Commuters invited to comment on proposed changes to I-205 corridor

Commuters who regularly use the Interstate 205 corridor between Oregon City and the Interstate 5 interchange are invited to comment on proposed changes to the freeway.

The two-lane section of I-205 between the Abernethy Bridge and the Stafford Road interchange often creates a bottleneck that causes congestion and crashes and creates delays for travelers and freight.

According to an Oregon Department of Transportation study, more than 100,000 vehicles use the section of I-205 daily and drivers experience five and half hours of congestion each day.

Read more about proposed improvements to this stretch of freeway and add your opinions using an online open house link at www.i205corridor.org.
