The Hawthorne Bridge will be closed to all users on Sunday, November 1 from 6 am until as late as 9 pm during maintenance work on the drawbridge. Crews will be greasing the cables that raise the lift span for ships to pass. The work requires frequent and prolonged openings of the drawbridge, so the bridge will be closed to all users. This work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled for Sunday, November 8 in the event of heavy rain.
TriMet bus routes that normally use the Hawthorne Bridge will detour to the Morrison Bridge when the Hawthorne is closed. For details, visit https://trimet.org/#alerts/. Alternate routes for bridge users include the Morrison and Ross Island bridges.
