A reader just passed along a note that the bike and pedestrian walkway below the Steel Bridge will be closed this week. Here’s the official notice from PortlandOnline.com:

Lower deck of Steel Bridge to close for maintenance May 5-7 and May 10
HDR Engineering Inc. will be inspecting and maintaining the concrete portions of the Steel Bridge directly over the bicycle and pedestrian path on the lower walkway, which must be closed during the work. The walkway will be closed May 5 through May 7 for the maintenance and again on Sunday, May 10, because the entire lower deck will be in the raised position through the day for inspection of the lower surface of the upper structure. The sidewalk on the upper deck of the bridge will remain open to accommodate cyclists and walkers.
