PORTLAND, Ore. – The Broadway Bridge will be closed overnight Wednesday while contractors work on the drawbridge, the first of many closures in the weeks to come.

Crews will close the bridge from 11:30 p.m. Wednesday through about 5 a.m. Thursday.

Multnomah County officials said the contractor is adjustments to some new tracks that help raise the drawbridge for ships.

Night closures are intended to have the least impact on TriMet riders and commuters. People riding the 17-Broadway/Holgate bus route will have a detour across the Steel Bridge.
