I5 Viaduct Paving to Detour Medford Freeway Traffic

Interstate 5 will be detoured through Medford over two nights late next week so Knife River Materials crews can safely pave the roadway between the Medford Viaduct and the Bear Creek Bridges near south Medford interchange.

Southbound traffic will detour Wednesday night, June 29 from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. for paving. Traffic will divert at north Medford interchange Exit 30 and be directed to Court and Central Avenues before returning to the interstate at south Medford interchange, Exit 27.

Thursday night, the crews will pave the northbound lanes so traffic will be detoured using Riverside Avenue.

Traffic will detour off the interstate for the $800,000, one mile paving repair to ensure crew and public safety.
