The northbound span of the Interstate Bridge re-opened late Friday but occasional southbound lane closures will continue in the weeks ahead as the project enters its final phase.
The most disruptive part of the project involved closing the northbound span to replace aging parts in the lift mechanism. But work continues.

The 103-year-old northbound span closed while crews replaced mechanical parts that help lift and lower the bridge. The Interstate Bridge carries I-5 across the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington.
The Interstate Bridge is jointly owned by Oregon and Washington and is maintained and operated by ODOT. The two states are sharing the $13 million cost of this project. The northbound span opened in 1917 and the southbound span in 1958.
