UPDATE: The truck was towed off the ramp, it was inspected for damage and the ramp re-opened at 3:15 p.m. Friday afternoon.


A large truck has crashed into the guardrail on the ramp from SB I-5 to EB I-84. This accident will severely complicate the commute in the downtown core and North Portland.

Traffic will be really bad for folks headed south on I-5 into downtown Portland from North Portland and Clark County. (From Clark County, headed to EastPo, take I-205 and the Glenn Jackson Bridge to avoid the mess.)
