Hood River Bridge Intermittent, Single Lane Closures Begin Oct 2 2017

Intermittent, Single Lane Closures for Bridge Auxilary Truss and Floorbeam Upgrades

There will be intermittent, single lane closures on the Hood River Bridge beginning October 2, 2017.  These closures will likely last through October 16, 2017. The closures could last up to 30 minutes.

The closures are to prepare for extensive upgrades to the critical support trusses. Minnesota-based Abhe &Svoboda, Inc is performing the work. After work platforms are in place, Abhe & Svoboda will perform repairs to the Hood River Bridge auxiliary trusses and floorbeam. The repair work will be under the bridge and will not require lane closures while the work is performed.  There will be a period when they need to move the work platforms, which may require future lane closures.

Again, travelers should plan for up to 30-minute delays for single lane closures between Oct 2 through Oct 16, 2017.

And stay tuned, the planned intermittent single lane closures are subject to change; in fact, they have changed consistently after similar announcements.

I do not understand why in Europe and certain parts of this country Construction i.e.: road repair is done at night not to inconvenience the people who are trying to go to work..... but here in Los Angeles we shut down the roads or leave one lane open during Rush Hour so to guarantee a nine mile commute to be 1.5 hrs???Endre

I can only guess it is safety related mandating repair during daylight.  Fortunately, we are rural and the backup is nothing like you mention.
