By Eric Florip, Columbian Transportation & Environment Reporter



Maintenance work on the Interstate Bridge will mean three northbound-only bridge lifts Saturday morning, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Crews will lubricate counter weights on the bridge connecting Vancouver and Portland. The work requires three 20-minute bridge lifts on the northbound side between 6 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., according to ODOT. Drivers traveling north on the freeway Saturday morning should expect delays.
