Sellwood Bridge traffic update

April 15, 2013

  • News Image

Hwy. 43 Lane Closure: The outside southbound lane of Highway 43 is closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays between SW Taylors Ferry Road and the project limits south of the bridge while the contractor excavates the hillside west of the highway.

Springwater Trail: The week of April 15 a contractor will be setting up equipment south of the bridge near the trail. This may require brief closures of the trail, for five minutes or less.  Trail users that prefer a detour will be directed to an alternate route across SE Tacoma St. at SE 7th Ave.

For safety, bridge users are not to cut through the narrow residential streets in the Sellwood area to dodge commute traffic.
