Bike traffic on the Eastbank Esplanade between the Hawthorne Bridge and SE Caruthers Street will be temporarily detoured to SE Water Avenue Wednesday, February 2, through Friday, February 11, 2011.

In preparation for the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project’s new bridge over the Willamette River, crews will be collecting geotechnical samples along the riverbank using heavy equipment.
