PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Bureau of Transportation reopened the lower deck of the Steel Bridge after an earlier closure due to a gate malfunction. 

PBOT said the gates are working properly and opened the bridge around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Officials closed the lower deck Monday night to pedestrians and bikers. 

The closure was expected to last through the Tuesday morning commute hours, according PBOT.

The bridge is now open to all traffic.
