PORTLAND – Starting this Wednesday, a section of the Eastbank Esplanade will close for more than a year for construction on the new Portland-Milwaukie light rail bridge.

There is an established detour just south of OMSI. TriMet says it's too much of a safety risk to keep the trail open during that work.

Cyclists and pedestrians will share the roads with both cars and trucks.
