The Oregonian/Oregonian reports the popular tourist attraction will be shut down from June 23 through July 30.

The tram opened in 2006. It undergoes periodic maintenance throughout the year, but this will be the longest closure in its history.

In addition to being a tourist draw, the tram is a key transportation link for thousands of Oregon Health & Science University employees, students and staff.

OHSU will run shuttle buses between the South Waterfront and the campus between 5:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. on weekdays.
