Northbound onramp from Milwaukie onto Interstate 205 to close Monday-Friday next week

To complete the final connection between the Milwaukie Expressway and the new Sunrise Expressway just east of Interstate 205, the Oregon Department of Transportation expects one more major traffic impact for motorists.

ODOT - Eastbound traffic from Milwaukie will have to get on Interstate 205 northbound by taking 82nd Avenue to Sunnybrook Boulevard.The contractor is planning to close the I-205 Exit 13 northbound on-ramp from Monday, May 16, through Friday, May 20. 82nd Drive traffic to the I-205 Exit 13 northbound on-ramp will also close temporarily. This round-the-clock closure will start at 5 a.m. on Monday and is expected to be complete by 5 p.m. on Friday.

The recommended detour route is for eastbound Milwaukie Expressway traffic to go north on Southeast 82nd Avenue to the Southeast Sunnybrook Boulevard/Sunnyside Road on-ramp to I-205 north (exit 14). Signs will direct motorists.

The Sunrise Expressway is nearing completion and ODOT expects it to open on July 1. For project updates, check out SunriseJTA.org.
