Ross Island Bridge inspections create lane closures

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Inspectors are looking over the Ross Island Bridge, leading to nighttime lane closures on Interstate 5.

Routine bridge inspections are taking place this week around the clock.

From 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. though March 31, crews will close one lane in each direction on I-5 under the Ross Island Bridge and on the top of the bridge.

That will allow crews to place equipment on the roadway and perform inspections.

During the day, crews will use a lift crane and roping techniques to inspect the bridge with no impact to traffic.

The inspections of the bridge take place every few years.
