PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Oregon Department of Transportation is warning of delays for southbound drivers wanting to cross the Columbia River into Portland from Vancouver.

Crews will have to life the southbound Interstate 5 bridge to make a repair at about 8 p.m. Saturday. ODOT says motorists should expect a delay of 30 to 60 minutes and should plan ahead or use an alternate route.

Northbound lanes are unaffected.

Test lifts will occur later in the night with similar delays.
