Morrison Bridge closed Sunday, January 26 for maintenance
The Morrison Bridge will be closed to motor vehicle traffic on Sunday, January 26 from 7 a.m. until as late as 7 p.m. during maintenance work. The bridge will remain open to bicyclists and pedestrians except between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. when the drawbridge will be raised. Several drawbridge openings will also be required in the afternoon. The work will not impact river users requiring a drawbridge opening.
Ramps between the bridge and Interstate 5 and Interstate 84 will be closed on Sunday. The only exception is the ramp from the Morrison Bridge westbound to I-5 north which will only be closed from 7 a.m. until about 9 a.m. While the I-5 southbound City Center/Morrison Bridge off-ramp (exit 300) will be closed, the I-5 southbound ramp to Highway 99E/U.S. 26 will remain open. Motorists can access I-84 eastbound at NE Grand Avenue and NE Everett Street.
To access downtown Portland from the freeways during the closure, I-5 southbound drivers can exit at the Rose Quarter/Broadway Bridge and I-84 westbound drivers can exit at Rose Quarter/Weidler exits.
During the closure, TriMet’s 15 Belmont/NW 23rd bus line will be detoured to the Hawthorne Bridge.
The bridge closure will allow a county crew to inspect sign bridges above the bridge, clean gutters, replace stormwater filters, and repair areas of the road deck and sidewalks.
