Bridge work is occurring. Traffic has been moved to the westbound side and will remain single lane in both directions while the work progresses. The eastbound lanes on the Willamette River Bridge are currently closed for construction. The Delta Highway ramps are open. Use caution. Expect minor delays.
Beltline/Delta Interchange Project
Beginning July 8, northbound Delta Highway travelers will take a left-turn detour to access eastbound Beltline Highway. The detour is scheduled to last for six weeks as upgrades and improvements are done to the current regular ramp.

Be especially cautious in the area as people get used to the change.
Work is scheduled to be completed in mid-August.
