The westbound lanes of Interstate 84 close between Interstate 5 and Interstate starting at 10 p.m. tonight, that's Friday July 19.

Officials say repaving of the westbound lanes and ramps will keep the zone shut until 5 a.m. Monday.

Those planning to attend the American Idol Live concert Saturday night at the Rose Garden will face heavy traffic along Interstate 5 in the Rose Quarter and should plan for extra travel time or take mass transit.

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

Officials say ODOT is re-paving 5.5 miles of I-84 for the first time since 2002 because it is the busiest road in the state and has become rutted and worn.

The work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled if there's rain.

The closure schedule is as follows:

10 p.m. Friday July 19 to 5 a.m. Monday July 22 all westbound lanes will be closed for grinding and paving.

11 p.m. Saturday Aug. 3 to 5 a.m. Monday Aug. 5 all westbound lanes will be closed for sign installation and restriping.

The Northeast Halsey Street overpass at 82nd Avenue also will be closed for two to three nights in July for paving and other repairs.

East-west alternate routes available during the closures include Lombard Street, Columbia Boulevard, Sandy Boulevard, Burnside Street and Powell Boulevard.

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and map out an alternate route in advance, expect heavier traffic than usual on the alternate routes and take public transit when possible.

Travelers can get the latest information about changes to the schedule on the Web at www.i84paving.org or www.tripcheck.com ; on the project hotline, in English and Spanish, 503â€
