The Oregon Department of Transportation says there will be no more full weekend closures of The Dalles Bridge now that a major portion of the work to replace the structure’s driving surface is finished. Crews have been working on the project since 2021, and during much of that time the bridge has been closed on weekends. ODOT says the bridge deck replacement is complete, but travelers should expect to see continued construction through April. Crews will be closing single lanes at night during the week and flagging traffic. There will be two consecutive weekends in April with nighttime only closures of the entire bridge to install a concrete surface over the entire length of the bridge. The schedule for those closures will be announced later this spring.
