PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — From Sept. 23 through Sept. 25 construction on Interstate 84 will be disrupting the traffic flow in both directions through Northeast Portland.

Driving Westbound:

  • Exit I-84 at Exit 9 toward I-205 Southbound
  • Merge back onto I-84 West

MAX Blue Line Riders:

  • Service will be disrupted between Gateway Transit Center and E 122nd Ave MAX Station
