PORTLAND, Ore. — A section of Interstate 405 in Portland is closed this weekend. The freeway is expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
The lanes are closed so the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) can work on the installation of a new pedestrian and bicycle bridge. The bridge, known was Flanders Crossing, will connect Northwest Portland with the Pearl District, and the central city over I-405.
Drivers are advised to take the following routes while the interstate is closed:
- All northbound traffic on I-405 must take Exit 1, 12th Avenue/U.S. 26.
- All southbound I-405 traffic, including traffic from the Fremont Bridge, must take Exit 2A/2B, Everett/Couch/Burnside. The southbound ramp off the Fremont Bridge to U.S. 30 will remain open.
