A short section of the Springwater Trail under the Sellwood Bridge will be closed December 8 – 19, 2014 during demolition of the old east approach to the bridge above the trail. The closed section is between SE Spokane Street and SE Umatilla Street. Trail users will be directed to a detour via Spokane and Umatilla to SE 7th Avenue to cross SE Tacoma Street. After the old approach is taken down, the contractor will build the north half of the new east approach in 2015.
