Tour of Morrison Lift Span Project

05:30 PM - 07:00 PM Pacific Standard Time

Join WTS for a Members-only tour of the Morrison Bridge Lift Span work zone. Wear long pants and closed toe shoes to explore the project and learn how the county is navigating traffic during construction and the improvements for vehicles when work is completed this fall.

The Morrison Bridge is in the midst of a complex project to replace the deck on the lift span that failed prematurely. Multnomah County chose to install a new deck made of a different material that is significantly heavier than the current deck. The tour of the work zone will show how the county's contractor is adding weight to the drawbridge counterweights to balance the heavier weight of the new deck. While construction has created headaches for commuters, the project will deliver a solid deck that will improve traction for drivers and allow vehicle speed and weight limits to be increased when the work is completed this fall. Meet at Clarkelewis Restaurant, 1001 SE Water Ave, Portland, OR 97214 St at 5:30pm and then walk over to the Bridge.
