Oregon Department of Transportation crews will begin striping Interstate 5 starting this Sunday, May 11 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Crews will begin at the southern end of ODOT’s Region 2 at around milepost 170 just south of Cottage Grove, and then moving north. The work depends on the weather.
Over the next month or so, crews will continue striping during the night, covering both southbound and northbound lanes until they’ve completed the work. The northern boundary of Interstate 5 in Region 2 ends around milepost 280 near Wilsonville.
During the striping project on the interstate, there will be temporary lane closures but no complete closures. There could be some congestion, so motorists should expect minor delays. Variable message signs on trucks will warn motorists of the road work and to slow down.
