The Broadway Bridge will be closed to all traffic, including motor vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians for maintenance work on Sunday, April 3 from 7 am until as late as 7 pm. 

The closure will allow a Multnomah County Transportation crew to perform preventive maintenance, replace signs, repair damaged areas of the deck and repair structures that have been damaged by vehicle crashes.  The closure is not weather dependent.

The Steel Bridge is the nearest alternate crossing for bicyclists, pedestrians and motor vehicles. TriMet’s Broadway #17 bus will detour to the Steel Bridge during the closures.  Portland Streetcar A and B Loop service will run across the Tilikum Crossing, turning back at NW 10th and NW Northrup on the west side and N Broadway and N Ross on the east side.
