Over the weekend, ODOT closed the ramp from Interstate 5 northbound to OR 217 northbound. The closure caused a long backup on I-5 and even a crash on Sunday morning in the detour zone. Crews were grinding the flyover ramp deck and adding new signs and new double white lane dividers. Drivers should be aware that lane changes are now illegal on the flyover ramp.
