The northbound span of the Interstate Bridge, that crosses the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon to Vancouver, Washington, will close Sept. 19-27, 2020 to replace mechanical parts that help lift and lower the bridge. The southbound span will remain open to traffic in both directions; travelers will share the three open lanes.

Heavy traffic, congestion, and long delays are expected in the region during construction, as well as days prior and following. For more information, follow the link below.
