Big delays for motorists using the Portland-to-Vancouver I-5 Bridge THIS COMING Saturday and Sunday nights!
Multiple overnight bridge lifts will mean delays of up to 25 minutes this weekend BOTH Friday and Saturday nights at the Interstate Bridge connecting Portland to Vancouver, WA.
The lifts will take place from 10pm Friday to 9am Saturday and from 10pm Saturday to 5am Sunday. During the lifts, the bridge will be closed to all traffic including bicycles, pedestrians and motorized vehicles.
Bridge maintenance crews will be oiling by hand the five miles of cable on the draw spans.
Traffic should plan an alternate route or expect delays. As a detour, northbound traffic can use Interstate 84 east to northbound Interstate 205 across the Glenn Jackson Bridge into Washington. Southbound traffic may take SR 14 east to Interstate 205 into Oregon.
