ODOT reports that vandals have “ripped apart” lighting fixtures on the I-205 bike path.
Here are more details from ODOT’s Shelli Romero:
Parts of the I-205 bike and pedestrian trails have no lighting or very limited lighting because vandals have ripped apart the lighting fixtures. ODOT is working with law enforcement authorities and working to repair the damage, which could take weeks. ODOT urges all users of the bike/ped trails to take extra caution, and if anyone sees anything strange, please call 9-1-1.
Romero says the affected areas are:
I-205 from Washington to Holgate
I-205 northbound from Maywood to Rocky Butte
I hope to post photos soon. If anyone rides out that way and cares to chime in (or email me some photos), that would be great.
