Looking at the satellite photos of that crossing before it was torn up and the nearby driveway, UPRR uses a three-piece precast concrete crossing pad. Placing that should be quite fast, but probably needs a small crane. Besides that pad it looks like a few cubic feet of crushed rock and a few sacks of cold-patch asphalt would finish the job. Crew of three for a day, boom truck, materials... what? 1-2 grand?
As I understand things, Portland Parks and Rec (PPR) and PBOT share MUP responsibilities. In the recent BikePortland blogs about a Sullivan's Gulch MUP
it mentions that PPR and UPRR are in contact regarding that big, long-term development project. I wonder if PPR could nudge UPRR along to fix this tiny little bit of existing pathway?
