It’s that time again! TriMet’s biennial inspection of Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People, is scheduled from Monday, June 24 through Thursday, June 27. Pedestrians, cyclists and people using other modes like e-scooters to cross the Willamette River in both directions will need to use a single pathway between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. for each day of the inspection. TriMet bus and MAX service and Portland Streetcar will not be affected.

We’re working to keep the Tilikum Crossing in tip-top shape and apologize for any inconvenience the temporary path closures may cause. During the inspection, you may notice workers on top of, beside and even underneath the bridge. We ask that you follow the posted detour signs and urge cyclists to walk their bikes and yield to those on foot to help keep everyone safe.

Monday, June 24 and Tuesday, June 25

The eastbound multi-use path (south side of bridge) will be closed.

Use the westbound multi-use path on the north side of the bridge.

Use marked crosswalks near the South Waterfront/SW Moody MAX Station on the west end or the OMSI/SE Water MAX Station on the east end of the bridge.
