There will be intermittent, single-lane closures of the Hood River-White Salmon Interstate Bridge between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, November 9th through the 23rd for semi-annual maintenance and repair welding to the steel grate bridge deck.
No work will be performed on Wednesday, November 11 due to the Veterans Day federal holiday.
Multiple Port and Bulldog Welding crews will be on the bridge during these hours 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.
