The Broadway Bridge will be closed Monday night into Tuesday morning for a movie screw.

One traffic lane will be closed from 8 p.m. until 9 p.m. and after that all traffic lanes on the bridge and westside ramps will be closed until 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Crews will be working on the bridge for the film "Untraceable" later this month, according to transportation officials.

The bridge closure will not affect bicyclists, pedestrians or river traffic.

Later in the month, the bridge will be closed several other times for filming and production.

Also, the picture captioned is actually the Hawthorne bridge, not the Broadway Bridge.

Because the /. community is obsessed with bridges and movie screws.

Also note, that the news guy who answered the phone at KGW was rude to The Rick Emerson show.

Also note, that they have already corrected the story, but I have the whole thing quoted as it was originally posted.

Now you got me wondering how we met again since your name doesn't entirely ring a bell.

I can't remember either. I can't even remember who friended who first.
