Sellwood Bridge will close in preparation for move

By Randy L. Rasmussen, The Oregonian - January 15, 2013

Work continued Monday at Portland's Sellwood Bridge in advance of its closure and planned move later in the week. The main bridge structure will be shifted over onto new supports to create a temporary detour bridge allowing a new bridge to be built in its old location. Workers shuttle across the Willamette River in a view looking toward the west end of the project.
