Traveling By Car From I-5, I-84 or Highway 26

From the North via I-5

  • Follow I-5 as you pass the Rose Garden Arena and downtown appears on your right.
  • Move to the center or left lane as you approach the Marquam Bridge -- the double-deck bridge over the Willamette River on the south edge of downtown.
  • Follow the signs for I-405 and Highway 26 (Beaverton) and take the left fork on the bridge.
  • Take Exit 1B: Fourth Avenue -- the first exit after leaving the bridge.
  • The light at the end of the ramp is Lincoln St. Keep going straight, but stay in the right-most lane. The Engineering Building is the second building on the next block (after Lincoln). Look for the brick building -- the ramp to the parking structure is on the corner.
  • If you miss the entrance to the parking structure, go around the BIG block to the right (Right on Harrison. Right on SW 1st, Right on Lincoln) and try again.

From the South via I-5

  • From I-5 heading north toward downtown, follow the signs for I-405, Beaverton.
  • Stay right as you merge with the traffic from the Marquam bridge
  • Take the first exit: Southwest Fourth
  • The light at the end of the ramp is Lincoln St. Keep going straight, but stay in the right-most lane. The Engineering Building is the second building on the next block (after Lincoln). Look for the brick building -- the ramp to the parking structure is on the corner.
  • If you miss the entrance to the parking structure, go around the BIG block to the right (Right on Harrison. Right on SW 1st, Right on Lincoln) and try again.

From the East via I-84

  • Heading west via I-84, follow the signs to I-5 south (Salem) and I-405 west (Beaverton). Move to the center or left lane as you approach the Marquam bridge -- the double-deck bridge over the Willamette River on the south edge of downtown.
  • Follow signs for I-405 and Highway 26 (Beaverton) and take the left fork on the bridge.
  • Take Exit 1B: Fourth Avenue -- the first exit after leaving the bridge.
  • The light at the end of the ramp is Lincoln St. Keep going straight, but stay in the right-most lane. The Engineering Building is the second building on the next block (after Lincoln). Look for the brick building -- the ramp to the parking structure is on the corner.
  • If you miss the entrance to the parking structure, go around the BIG block to the right (Right on Harrison. Right on SW 1st, Right on Lincoln) and try again.

From the West via Highway 26

Because Fourth Avenue is one-way heading north the approach to the building from the west involves more downtown driving than the other directions. There is a back street ninja technique to get from Highway 26 to Barbur and then to Fourth. There's another route that takes you from Fifth Avenue heading south to Lincoln St. east and then onto Fourth, but it requires finding a short, small side street that connects Fifth Avenue and Lincoln. The following directions are more straightforward, though they take you through a little more downtown traffic.

  • From Highway 26 heading toward downtown move to the center lane after you pass the Sylvan exit (at the top of the hill). Be sure you are in the center lane before entering the tunnel.
  • After emerging from the tunnel, continue straight ahead to take the Market St. Exit.
  • Take market through town to Southwest First Avenue -- almost to the river
  • Turn Right on Southwest First
  • Turn Right at Lincoln -- the second light
  • Go up the hill and turn right on Southwest Fourth -- the next light
  • The Engineering Building is the second building on your right after turning onto Southwest Fourth. Look for the brick building -- the ramp to the parking structure is on the corner.
  • If you miss the entrance to the parking structure, go around the BIG block to the right (Right on Harrison. Right on SW 1st, Right on Lincoln) and try again.

 


Getting Upstairs to the MME Office

There is a somewhat confusing route from the parking structure to the MME office on the fourth floor of the Engineering Building. From the parking structure take the elevator up two floors to the lobby (PL button on the elevator, PL for "plaza") of the Fourth Avenue Building (1900 SW Fourth) which is next door to the Engineering building

From the lobby of the Fourth Avenue building walk outside and to the south. The Engineering Building is the brick and glass structure with the swooping arc of artwork. From the front doors, the elevators of the Engineering Building are ahead and slightly to the right. The Mechanical and Materials Engineering Department is on the fourth floor: turn right as you leave the elevator on the fourth floor.

Getting to the Fariborz Maseeh Auditorium

The Fariborz Maseeh Auditorium is Room 102 (ground floor) in the Engineering Building. If you are arriving from the parking structure follow the directions for getting upstairs and instead of going up to the fourth floor, go to Room 102 on the ground floor. As you enter the front doors, head left across the atrium and follow the hallway. The entrance to the auditorium is on the north side of the building.
