Rail and Trails existing together. Yes, despite what the railroads here in North Portland are testifying, it is possible–and safe!
Here is a great video shot by Michael Irving of his exerience on the Westside Express Service this week. Checkout the great views of all the water and trails. Love the view of the bridge from the train. We experienced it last summer on the bike, but this provides a whole new perspective.
Thanks for throwing your post URL in the Twitter feed. I can track updates in Twitter from all of the blogs I read much more effectively that going to each blog each day. Great showcase of a video, well stated appeal for the trails. What is the current story of this type of thing in the Portland, OR area? How far can I travel from NE PDX through something like this?
Glad you like the Twitter feed. Your help in realizing the vision of a multipurpose trail from the Steel Bridge to the Columbia River is needed. Send Metro your comments in support of funding project development for the North Portland Willamette Greenway Trail.
npGREENWAY has made the list of recommended projects! We need to keep the pressure on Metro and the Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation (JPACT) by sending in more public comments.
The formal comment period ends on February 12th.
