After some speculation that the old Sauvie Island Bridge might become a new bike/ped only bridge over the 405 freeway at Flanders Street, city transportation insider Chris Smith tell us that,

We needed a ton of community excitement (and cash) for Sam Adams to put his weight behind this. Bummer. I was pretty excited about this.
