Hawthorne Bridge Closed Sunday for Maintenance

The Hawthorne Bridge will be closed to all users this Sunday, October 3 from 7 am until as late as 3 pm during annual maintenance work. During the closure crews will grease the counterweight cables and make adjustments to other cables that help to raise and lower the bridge. The lift span will be in the raised position during much of the work. The work is weather dependent and will need to be rescheduled in the event of heavy rain.

Alternate river crossings include the Burnside, Morrison, Marquam and Ross Island bridges. TriMet bus routes that normally cross the Hawthorne Bridge will be detoured across the Morrison Bridge. The closure will not impact river traffic.

Multnomah County maintains the Hawthorne Bridge, five other Willamette River bridges and 300 miles of roads. For more information, visit www.multco.us/bridges.
