PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - All lanes of West Burnside will be closed over the weekend as Portland Parks & Recreation continues to repair the Barbara Walker Crossing.

The bridge was damaged in January during a landslide.

Drivers will be detoured onto Highway 26 or Interstate 405. Detours will begin for eastbound traffic at Northwest Skyline and Burnside, and for westbound traffic at Northwest 23rd Avenue and Burnside.

Local access will be open for residents in the area during the closure.

The Barbara Walker Crossing remains closed. PP&R says it tentatively plans to reopen the bridge in early May.
