The Stark Street Bridge over the Sandy River will be closed for a structural inspection and repairs on Monday and Tuesday, June 29-30 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. The bridge will reopen each day after work hours. When the bridge is closed, the alternate route is the Troutdale Bridge on the Historic Columbia River Highway to the north.
The inspection and repairs will require the use of a manlift on the bridge. Weight limits prevent other traffic from using the bridge when the manlift is in use. Crews will repair potholes, curb damage and a structural member below the bridge deck. The work is not weather-dependent.
Multnomah County maintains the Stark Street Bridge and more than 270 miles of roads in rural and urban areas. For bridge information, visit www.multco.us/bridges.
