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.
