The westbound lane of the Sellwood Bridge will be closed from 7 p.m. tonight, Jan. 28, until as late as 5 a.m. tomorrow, Jan. 29, while the contractor modifies the deck joint at the east end of the truss span to reduce vehicle noise. Flaggers will direct traffic around the work zone, so the bridge will remain open to traffic in both lanes at all times. Bicyclists and pedestrians will also be able to cross the bridge at all times.
The construction crew will modify the deck joint between the old truss span and a new section of the east approach. The modification will reduce the noise that traffic makes crossing the deck joint.
