The Sellwood Bridge was scheduled to reopen at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, May 16, three hours ahead of schedule.
The bridge had been closed three days while 27 concrete girders were installed between the east approach columns of the replacement span bridge. Crews were able to complete their work and reopen the bridge ahead of schedule.
The new Sellwood Bridge is expected to open in the early fall of 2015. For project information, visit www.sellwoodbridge.org.
