Visiting Fleet Week ships begin arriving on Tuesday, June 6th this year and commuters should expect bridge lifts and associated delays affecting the following bridges: Broadway, Steel, and Burnside.
These times are estimates and subject to change. Real time updates to bridge lifts will be sent out on the Portland Fire & Rescue Twitter page by PF&R Harbor Master as ships are transiting upriver and arrival times are more accurate. These tweets will be made on the afternoons of the arrival days.
*Further information will be available during the Fleet Week Media event for the Wednesday and Thursday bridge lifts. Information about this event was sent out in a separate Press Release.
