After an arson fire burned through several key support columns in August of 2006, the 82nd Drive/Park Place bike/ped bridge (map) over the Clackamas River (between Gladstone and Oregon City) is slated to officially re-open tomorrow.
In a newsletter from Clackamas County’s Water Environment Services division, county Board Chair Lynn Peterson said, “We know the public is eager for this work to be completed…and the public can once again enjoy this important pedestrian and bicycle access across the river.”
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
