PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The bicycle and pedestrian path on the lower deck of the Steel Bridge has been closed due to damage to a specialized cable that controls the bridge gates, officials with the Portland Bureau of Transportation said Wednesday. 

The closure is expected to last for several days.

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

The narrower sidewalk on the upper deck remains open, but officials say to use caution and expect congestion.
