sidewalk of the Steel Bridge Tuesday morning.
Update 3:59 pm: The bridge lower deck is now open, and the city's Diane Dulken writes to confirm that the city, not Union Pacific Railroad, is responsible for the lower-deck cameras related to this closure.
Portlanders' unscheduled trip into the 90s extended into its fourth day Tuesday as the lower deck of the Steel Bridge, built for $10 million in 2001, remained closed due to a camera failure.
City spokeswoman Diane Dulken said Monday that Union Pacific Railroad runs the cameras, and that the problem is UP's. The next morning, UP's California-based spokesman Aaron Hunt said that this was not true, and that the city has been working to repair them. Update: Dulken confirmed, late Tuesday afternoon, that the railroad was correct, and the cameras are the city's responsibility.
Dulken said Tuesday that she had no information about whether Union Pacific had been in contact with the city. She said she wasn't aware of detour signs other than the ones at the Steel Bridge's lower-deck gates themselves.
