A construction worker works near the upper deck of the Portland Aerial Tram, about 125' high, part of a 5-week track line maintenance operation, July 2, 2018. Every 12 years the ropes must be shifted. Each line holds about 124,000 pounds of tension. The tram will reopen on July 30. (OHSU/Kristyna Wentz-Graff)
