(Update: The bridge was reopened at about 8:30am) Traffic Advisory: Lower deck of Steel Bridge closed to biking, walking traffic through Tuesday morning commute because of gate malfunction

(March 7, 2016) – Effective immediately, the gates on the lower deck of the Steel Bridge are closed to bicycle and pedestrian traffic due to a gate malfunction. The closure is expected to last through Tuesday morning commute hours.

People walking or biking are advised to use an alternate route or cross the Steel Bridge on the upper deck. Be especially cautious and safely share the upper deck walkways because they are narrow. People biking may also take the lane on the bridge roadway. Alternate routes include the Broadway, Burnside or Morrison bridges.
