The Hood River Bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic beginning at 9:00pm on April 29, 2019. The closure will last until 5am on April 30, 2019. The closure will occur again on April 30, 2019, beginning at 9:00pm, again lasting until 5am the next morning. The closure to all traffic is necessary to complete the new electrical control system for the lift span. This will include installation, testing, and re-commissioning of the system.
Motorists will need to seek alternative routes during the closures. Alternative crossings exist at Bridge of the Gods in Cascade Locks or The Dalles Bridge in The Dalles. The alternative crossings are approximately 20 miles east (The Dalles) or west (Cascade Locks). Or spend the night in Hood River or White Salmon and enjoy what the town has to offer. Please plan accordingly.
