PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Bureau of Transportation has closed the bicycle and pedestrian path on the lower deck of the Steel Bridge because of an electrical problem.

PBOT officials said they have crews working on the situation and hope to have the lower deck reopened by Tuesday.

Pedestrians and bikers are advised to use the Burnside, Broadway or Morrison bridges as alternate routes.

PBOT noted that the narrower sidewalk on the upper deck of the bridge is still open but expected to be congested.
