Portland’s northernmost downtown bridge will be closed for repairs Sunday, blocking auto, bike, skate and streetcar traffic alike.

Here’s the county’s press release:

The Broadway Bridge will be closed to motor vehicles and sidewalk traffic on Sunday, November 24 from 7:30 a.m. until as late as 5 p.m. while crews make a repair to the lift span. The work will require the drawbridge to be in the open position much of the day. The closure will not impact river traffic.

TriMet’s 17-Holgate/Broadway bus route will detour to the Steel Bridge while the Broadway Bridge is closed. The Steel Bridge is also the best alternate crossing for bicyclists and pedestrians.

    Hmm. It did seem to be malfunctioning during a lift I got stuck at on Friday morning. It went up. One side only came back down. It took another 20 minutes before the other side finally started to come back down.
