Broadway Bridge to Close for Two Months

The Broadway Bridge in central Portland is scheduled to be closed from Tuesday July 6 to Sept. 3 for all motorized vehicles due to streetcar construction.

N Broadway will be closed west of N Larrabee Street and NW Broadway will be closed to through traffic north of NW Hoyt Street. The NW Lovejoy Street ramp at the bridge will be closed to all traffic east of NW Ninth Avenue. Access to Union Station will be maintained.

The traveling public should expect traffic delays on Broadway, Weidler and Lovejoy and use detours. Westbound motorized traffic will be detoured to the Burnside and Steel bridges, and eastbound traffic will be detoured toward I-405 and the Fremont Bridge.

Construction schedules are subject to change. More information about alternate bicycle and pedestrian routes will be released prior to the closure. The Portland Bureau of Transportation appreciates travelers’ patience during what may be one of the busiest construction seasons in Oregon history.
