An electrical problem has closed the bike/pedestrian path on the southbound span of the Interstate 5 Bridge until next week, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.

The closure will allow crews to repair one of the gates that keep users away from the lift span during bridge lifts, according to ODOT. The electrical problem has left the gate on the south end of the bridge inoperable, the agency said.

Cyclists and pedestrians can use the path on the northbound bridge during the closure. The southbound path could be open by the middle of next week, according to ODOT.
