Sellwood Bridge construction: Traffic advisory for Jan. 8
Two lanes of Highway 43 will be closed north of the Sellwood Bridge on Wednesday, January 8 from 9 a.m. until as late as 4 p.m. due to construction of retaining walls on the west side of the highway.
One lane will remain open in each direction. The traffic signal at the west end of the bridge will be turned off during the lane closures and flaggers will direct traffic. The lane closures will add to traffic congestion, so travelers may want to avoid delays by using alternate routes such as the Ross Island Bridge or SW Taylors Ferry and SW Terwilliger Blvd. For more information, visit www.sellwoodbridge.org.
