The Sellwood Bridge is scheduled to close at 5 a.m. Thursday. Workers will push the structure's steel deck sideways about 60 feet over the weekend. Then they'll reattach the deck to the road, so by the end of next week commuters will be able to drive around the platform where the new bridge will be built.
Business owners on either side of the bridge are pleased the closure is only scheduled for a week. But some are still worried about the bottom line.
