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.

The Waterfront

The curves of the Columbia River hold a wealth of cultural and recreational experiences for visitors to explore.

From shopping and dining to water sports and parks, Vancouver's waterfront community continues to grow. The new developments add to an already pleasant place for a stroll on the Columbia River Waterfront Renaissance Trail or a craft brew on the patio at McMenamins on the Columbia. Beaches Restaurant & Bar gets bragging rights to one of the best happy hours in town.

What does a day at The Waterfront look like on the west side of Interstate 5? Plan to grab a fresh seafood dish on the WildFin deck while watching sailboats pass by the 90-foot Grant Street Pier. Bring the kids to play in the City of Vancouver's new 7.3-acre Waterfront Park that will feature an open lawn for cartwheels, an urban beach for sandcastles, and seating areas perfect for picnics. For a riverside retreat, stay at the Indigo Hotel—a unique and vibrant boutique property that exudes the local culture.
