Historic Steel Bridge in Portland, Oregon Closed due to Train Derailment

A train car derailed in Portland, Oregon, leaning against a support column of the historic Union Pacific Steel Bridge. The bridge was closed as cleanup and investigation began. Fortunately, no injuries or hazardous material concerns were reported. The bridge, known for its double-decker style, will remain closed until its structural stability is assessed. Similar incidents have occurred recently, including a train derailment in New Mexico with propane-carrying cars and a cargo ship collision with Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge. Engineers are working to address the situation in Portland, with updates to come as the investigation progresses.
