Morrison Bridge: The bridge will be closed on Sunday, February 25 from 6 am until 3 pm for annual maintenance work, including washing, drain cleaning, and tests of the lift span. The work requires the drawbridge to be open most of the day, so bicyclists and pedestrians should use alternate routes such as the Hawthorne and Burnside bridges. Those crossings are also good alternates for drivers. TriMet’s 15 Belmont/NW23rd bus route will detour to the Hawthorne Bridge during the closure.
Ramps between the bridge and Interstate 5 and Interstate 84 will be closed on Sunday, except for the ramp from the Morrison Bridge westbound to I-5 north. While the I-5 southbound City Center/Morrison Bridge off-ramp (exit 300) will be closed, the I-5 southbound ramp to Highway 99E/U.S. 26 will remain open. Motorists can access I-84 eastbound at NE Grand Avenue and NE 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.
