Expect delays on Bridge of the Gods
The Port of Cascade Locks on Wednesday, March 13, put into place traffic controls for trucks crossing the Bridge of the Gods due to requirements from the Federal Highway Administration and Oregon Department of Transportation.
Flaggers at each end of the bridge will control traffic from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, when flaggers will alternate trucks up to 80,000 GVW over the bridge. Expect short delays.
From 3 p.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday, and during weekends, the bridge is controlled by temporary weight restriction signs limiting trucks planning to cross the bridge to 60,000 GVW.
The Port is working with businesses and communities on both sides of the Columbia River to accommodate truck traffic.
The Oregon Department of Transportation is in the process of performing a weight and load study of the Bridge of the Gods and will have a final report ready this fall. Weight restrictions on the bridge will be reassessed them.
