Tearing down the old Sellwood Bridge to make way for the new has gotten creative juices flowing.

By month’s end, workers will begin installing 23 multicolored sculptures on the east approach to the Sellwood Bridge, providing a new gateway to Southeast Portland.

In addition, two Sellwood residents came together to repurpose remnants of the old bridge, creating crafts that are being sold to benefit Sellwood Middle School.

Final work on the new bridge is near completion, with all construction expected to end Nov. 16.
