A portion of the Willamette River Greenway Trail that closed back in July 2010 has now been re-opened.
The managers of the McCormick Pier condos closed a segment of the path about midway between the Broadway and Steel Bridges after noticing surface cracks caused by erosion. The damaged area of the Greenway Trail fell under the responsibility of the McCormick Pier Condominium homeowners association (as per a 2002 agreement with Portland Parks & Recreation).
Lisa Campbell with Community Management Incorporated, the agency that handled the repairs, said they spent about $50,000. Campbell says the lengthy closure was just a matter of getting all the designs and permits approved by the City of Portland.
Here's another shot of the new path segment looking south with the Steel Bridge in the background.
