Watching And Waiting On The Sellwood Bridge

Pete Springer/OPB

The Sellwood bridge in Portland is infamous for a couple of reasons. Although it’s the most heavily traveled two lane bridges in the state, it’s rated a two on a 100 point scale for safety. The work of replacing the bridge has finally begun, and OPB News reporter Kristian Foden-Vencil has been following the story and joins us to bring us the latest update. Engineers moved the bridge temporarily on Saturday, as part of building its replacement.

What questions do you have about the safety or replacement of the Sellwood bridge?
