PORTLAND -- The St. Johns Bridge will close for five nights starting 10 p.m. Monday, Jan. 31 for maintenance and bridge inspections.

The bridge will close the night of Monday, Jan. 31 from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following morning. The schedule will repeat Tuesday through Friday nights with the work completed no later than 5 a.m. Saturday. Feb. 5.

The St. Johns Bridge will remain open to pedestrians and bicyclists during the work. Flaggers will guide pedestrians and bicyclists across the bridge at the east and west ends of the bridge.

The closures are needed for maintenance and for the biennial bridge inspection.
