Flanders Crossing, the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s (PBOT) newest pedestrian and bicycle bridge, will be installed over I-405 in January. The bridge will connect NW Portland to the Pearl District and the central city. 

Crews will install the bridge Friday, January 8 – Sunday, January 10 and the installation requires a full closure of I-405 in both directions at NW Flanders St., including the closure of both the onramps and offramps at NW Couch St. (exit 2A). 

When complete, the 24-foot wide Flanders Crossing will stretch 200 feet in length and add a seismic lifeline in case of a major earthquake. The bridge is expected to open to two-way pedestrian and bike traffic Spring 2021.

The work is weather dependent and the schedule may change. For real-time traffic information, visit TripCheck.com.
