Installation of a new highway sign structure on Interstate 205 will require an overnight closure of the Glenn Jackson Bridge in both directions Wednesday night, according to Oregon highway officials. The closure will start at 8 p.m. and continue until 5 a.m. Thursday.
For travelers on northbound I-205, all exits before the Glenn Jackson Bridge, including Airport Way, will remain open. Washington-bound travelers should follow the signed detour to Interstate 84 west to northbound Interstate 5.
For southbound travelers in Washington, all exits prior to the Glenn Jackson Bridge will be open. Southbound travelers bound for Oregon should follow the signed detour to westbound State Route 14 to southbound I-5 into Oregon.
The new sign bridge is 166 feet long and spans both directions of the freeway. When installed, it will house ODOT RealTime advisory speed signs for northbound travelers and an updated travel time destination sign for southbound travelers.
