Update 2:20 pm: PBOT reports that the lower deck will reopen by 5 p.m. The original post follows.
If you usually bike or walk across the Steel Bridge’s lower deck in the morning rush hour, try another route on Wednesday.
It’s being closed at 7 a.m. for an inspection, according to the Portland Bureau of Transportation. PBOT added that it’ll announce the reopening, whenever that might happen, in a follow-up tweet from its @PBOTinfo account.
When a camera failure closed the lower deck one year ago this week, the bridge remained closed for four days.
