PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Morrison Bridge will be closed to all users on Thursday night and over the weekend due to construction.

Multnomah County said the closure will happen from 8 p.m. Thursday until 5 a.m. Friday, and from 7 a.m. on Saturday until as late as 4:30 a.m. Monday.

The closure is related to construction to replace the deck of the drawbridge's east leaf.

Ramps between the Morrison Bridge and Interstate 5 and Interstate 84 will be closed, except for the ramp from the Morrison Bridge westbound to I-5 north. 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 and I-84 westbound drivers can exit at Rose Quarter/Weidler exits.

Multnomah County said the closure will have different impacts for I-5 south traffic.

On Thursday night, when I-5 south is open, I-5 south traffic can access the onramp to Highway 99E/U.S. 26.

During the weekend, I-5 south will be closed between N Broadway and the Marquam Bridge, I-5 south traffic can access downtown from the Rose Quarter/Broadway Bridge exit or from I-405.
