Update from Port of Portland on PDX airport:

Staffing issues that prevent projects from filming in the Port of Portland headquarters building.  Similarly, limited staffing combined with a very busy summer travel season does not allow for film requests for PDX in the month of July. August projects will be considered, though it would be best to look to fall for a near-guaranteed yes.

ODOT will be working on I-5 and I-84 all summer.  More info here.
