Bridge lifts will affect traffic on I-5

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

ODOT crews will perform several bridge lifts on the southbound span of the Interstate Bridge starting at 10 p.m. Friday to perform maintenance work.

The lifts could each last 20 minutes, and will continue until 2 a.m. Saturday. Southbound traffic can take SR 14 east to I-205 and south into Oregon across the Glenn Jackson Bridge to avoid being stopped by the bridge lifts.

ODOT said that the lifts are necessary for crews to adjust the 300-pound roller assembly recently installed on the southwest bridge tower.
