The semi-annual maintenance and repair welding project currently underway on the Hood River-White Salmon Interstate Bridge will be extended one additional day, with work continuing between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 24. There will be intermittent, single-lane closures on the bridge during these hours.
Multiple Port of Hood River and Bulldog Welding crews will be working on the bridge and flaggers will direct traffic around the moving work zones. Motorists should expect delays of approximately 15-20 minutes.Since the bridge’s narrow traffic lanes and lack of shoulders create a very compact work zone, motorists are urged to drive slowly and with extreme caution for worker safety, and to avoid looking directly at the welding arc light as they pass the work shield.
