PORTLAND -- The Morrison Bridge was closed Sunday for a lift span inspection, officials said.

The bridge was closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. so deck panels installed in 2011 and 2012 could be inspected, according to Multnomah County spokesman Mike Pullen.

Drivers should use alternate routes during the closure.

Sidewalks for pedestrians and bicyclists remained open during the inspection.
