This is a construction entrance only, so be cautious of construction vehicles entering and exiting on the bridge. The outside southbound lane of Hwy. 43 is closed north of the bridge from 7 am to 4 pm on weekdays.

Field Work Notice - December 17, 2015

TRAFFIC ALERTS

  • The northbound lane of Hwy. 43 now uses the new interchange ramps and the southbound through lane travels under the new bridge (see article on project website). This will continue until summer 2016. Southbound traffic uses the right outside lane to access the bridge (not the left lane as before). The left lane is used for through traffic (Portland to Lake Oswego). “No turn on red” signs have been added at the interchange to reduce conflicts between motor vehicles and crosswalk users.
  • The outside southbound lane of Hwy. 43 is closed north of the bridge from 7 am to 4 pm on weekdays.
