One eastbound lane on the Morrison Bridge is closed in February and early March to allow Multnomah County to inspect the lift span deck.
The fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) deck that was installed on the lift span in 2011 – 2012 has shown signs of premature wear. Deck attachments for some panels have loosened. County staff have monitored the deck surface regularly in recent months as a precaution. The inspection will allow county crews to remove deck panels and inspect them for wear. Degraded panels will be replaced with new panels.
