COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE – Visitors to Multnomah Falls will be able to take in the view from the historic Benson Bridge by Memorial Day weekend.

The bridge closed in January when a rock fell and damaged the bridge. The closure kept hikers from traveling on the Wahkeena to Multnomah Falls loop for months.

The Forest Service will have a re-opening ceremony a week after the bridge re-opens on May 30.
