The City of Portland is moving forward with their plans to build a new bike and pedestrian bridge over I-5 that will connect the Lair Hill neighborhood with the South Waterfront district near the Aerial Tram.
Project manager Jody Yates says a new survey to gather input on the design has just been posted to the project website (survey closes June 15th).
The bridge is expected to cost about $5 million and it’s being paid for by the Federal Highway Administration. Construction is planned to begin in fall 2009.
The first public open house for the project has also been announced. It will take place on June 25th at Cedarwood School in Southwest Portland.
