All westbound lanes of I-84 from I-205 to I-5 in Portland will close at 10 p.m. Friday July 19 in the second of three weekend closures for paving.

The westbound freeway will re-open by 5 a.m. Monday July 22. Motorists around the Pacific Northwest traveling through the Portland area this weekend should plan an alternate route or expect delays.

The easiest ways to avoid the delays are to take alternate routes farther to the north or south of I-84 including Lombard or Columbia Boulevard to the north and Highway 224 to the south.

People going to the American Idol Live concert Saturday night will want to leave early or take TriMet.

The westbound lanes will close again from 11 p.m. Saturday Aug. 3 to 5 a.m. Monday Aug. 5.
