Since bicycle and pedestrian issues will play a major factor in the design of this bridge, we should all be paying attention.
You have until this Wednesday (11/28) to weigh in on the latest online survey. Also on Wednesday is an open house where Multnomah County and project reps will receive input and share information on the final six designs still under consideration.
To get a better sense of the possibilities, check out these lifelike renderings of the six designs. (Images courtesy TY Lin International/CH2M Hill).
After tallying the survey, and receiving input at the open house, the Community Task Force will make their final recommendation for which bridge types should move onto more detailed study on December 3rd. Then , the Policy Advisory Group will make a final decision on December 10th.
After an environmental study of the remaining options is completed, a “preferred alternative” will be selected next summer.
Here are the details for the upcoming public open house:
- Wednesday, November 28
6:00 to 9:00 pm
Oaks Park Dance Pavilion, just north of the bridge at 7100 SE Oaks Park Way.
*A short presentation followed by a question and answer session will be held on the hour at 6, 7 and 8 pm.
