I-5 Issues

Posted on 6th September 2013 at 16:13

If you’re heading into Portland over the weekend, some maintenance work on the I-5 bridges may hold you up for a bit. The Oregon Department of Transportation says that they need to grease the five miles of cables that operate the lift spans on the I-5 bridge, work that’s planned to be done tonight and tomorrow night, starting at 10 pm each night. As many as 20 lifts will be needed each night, lasting as long as 25 minutes apiece. Drivers will be wanting to use I-205 or Highway 30 as alternate routes for getting in or out of Portland on both nights.
