ODOT, Metro and Portland Parks & Recreation are collaborating on a new pedestrian/bike bridge that will connect Pier and Chimney Parks over the railroad gap. The bridge is a key connection in the 10.4 mile North Portland Greenway trail alignment.  (See approximate bridge location 2.5MB PDF)

This project is federally funded through a transportation enhancement grant with a local match provided by Portland Parks & Recreation. Project budget is 1.7 million. The PPR local match portion is $220,000. Metro is the lead local agency on this project working closely with PER.
Construction is anticipated for Summer 2012.

  • Survey work for the project has recently been completed.
  • The bridge will be approximately 110 feet long and 14 feet wide. It will cross over an active Union Pacific Railroad line.
  • Final location for the bridge should be decided in early July.
  • 30% design of the bridge will be completed by end of August.
  • A public meeting will be scheduled in fall of 2011 to preview bridge location, bridge design and connections to existing and future greenway trail sections in the parks.
