Project Information

  • Location: Morrison Bridge lift span, SE Morrison and Belmont Streets
  • Schedule: Summer 2024 - Fall 2025
  • Estimated Cost: $9 million
  • Funding Source: ODOT and Local Funds

Project Description

We will be adding titanium rebar to strengthen the SE Morrison and Belmont Street approach ramps on the east side of the Morrison Bridge. This will remove the weight restrictions that prevent heavy trucks from using the bridge.

We will also replace the motors and brakes in the movable span, which help to open and close the bridge.

Traffic Impacts

Work on the approach ramps will take place underneath the structure. There will be weekend and nighttime lane closures on I-5 underneath the ramps, and minor daytime lane closures on city streets beneath them.

River traffic will be affected by single-leaf bridge lifts while we work on the movable span. Tug assists will be provided as needed.


The work on the approach ramps is scheduled for fall of 2024. The work on the moveable spans is scheduled for summer through fall of  2025.
