Thurman Street Bridge closed through Labor Day

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Thurman Street Bridge will remain closed through Labor Day.

The City of Portland says the bridge’s deck and superstructure will be rebuilt.

The bridge, located in Northwest Portland, is the oldest of its kind in the state.

Northwest Thurman Street will be closed between 28th and 32nd avenues. The closure affects more than just drivers; bicyclists and runners will also need to find another route.

Funding for the project includes a $3.4 million grant from the Federal Highway Bridge Program and $390,000 of gas tax and parking revenues, according to the city’s website
