Morrison Bridge closed Sunday for inspection, maintenance work

Posted: Updated:

The Morrison Bridge will be closed to motor vehicle traffic on Sunday from 7 a.m. to as late as 7 p.m. during an inspection and maintenance work on the lift span deck.

According to Multnomah County, the work is related to problems with deck panels that were installed in 2011-2012.

The bridge will remain open to bicyclists and pedestrians during the work.

Ramps between the bridge and I- 5 and I- 84 will be closed on Sunday as well, except for the ramp from the Morrison Bridge westbound to I-5 north.

While the City Center/Morrison Bridge off-ramp is closed, the I-5 southbound ramp to Highway 99E/U.S. 26 will remain open.

Motorists can access I-84 eastbound at Northeast Grand Avenue and Northeast Everett Street.

To access downtown Portland from the freeways during the closure, I-5 southbound drivers can exit at the Rose Quarter/Broadway Bridge.

I-84 westbound drivers can exit at Rose Quarter/Weidler exits.

The county plans to replace the Morrison Bridge lift span deck starting this summer.
