Stuck in traffic on I-5? Construction work to blame

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

If you're headed northbound on Interstate 5 Friday, be prepared for delays.

The left lane of the freeway near milepost 302 is closed while ODOT crews work to repair a 10- to 12-foot section of an expansion joint that popped up this morning near the Fremont Bridge.

Northbound traffic is down to one lane and moving slowly over the expansion joint, which joins sections of the road.

Access to northbound I-5 from the Fremont Bridge remains unimpeded.

Drivers should plan to take an alternate route or expect long delays.

There's no word when crews will wrap up their work.
