Port of HR Bridge Lane Closures This Week
There will be intermittent single lane closures of the Port of Hood River Interstate Bridge today through Friday. The single lane closures will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day, with delays of 15 to 20 minutes during those hours. Flaggers will be on the bridge directing traffic. On Thursday, April 25 and Friday, April 26 there will be intermittent full bridge closures with 30 to 40 minute delays, and there will be a complete overnight closure on April 29 between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m. And Port Executive Director Michael McElwee says a follow-up project will have impacts on traffic in May. Exact details of those bridge delays and closures will be announced at a later date. McElwee says the goal is to get the maintenance projects done before the summer season and harvests.
