PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) A new $42 million Sauvie Island Bridge is now open.

After two and half years of construction, officials opened the structure to traffic June 23. The structure replaces the island’s original bridge, which had cracks and couldn’t support the weight of modern trucks.

Pedestrians will need to wait a few more months if they want to test out the new bridge. The sidewalks can’t be completed until the old bridge is removed.

The sidewalks and several other projects such as adding a bus stop will be completed through the summer and fall.
