HR Bridge Work To Require Delays In July
Concrete work on the approaches to the Hood River Interstate Bridge will take place beginning July 6, and that will bring the need for flaggers and one-way travel on weekdays for about a month. Port of Hood River Commissioner Rich McBride concedes this is not the ideal time to have bridge delays, but the project is one that is needed and Commissioners did not want to wait any longer to proceed, especially with harvest season coming. The majority of work will take place on the Washington side of the bridge. McBride noted the goal is to keep delays on the bridge down to 10 minutes.
