The Portland Bureau of Transportation has just announced a ten-day closure of the paths on the Tilikum Crossing Bridge between mid-April and the first week of May.
The closures are needed as part of their SW Bond Avenue Extension project, which will build a new road below the Marquam and Tilikum Bridges.
Here are the details about the upcoming Tilikum Crossing Bridge path closures:
While utility installation proceeds through the end of winter, the contractor will begin pouring curb, gutter and sidewalk. Notably, from April 15 through May 8, the contractor will connect Bond Avenue to Porter Street (the west end of Tilikum Crossing). This will require temporary closures of the multi-use paths on Tilikum Crossing – one at a time. The current schedule calls for the north side path to be closed for ten days, from April 15 through 28; the south side path for seven days, from April 29 through May 8. This will mean two-way pedestrian and bicycle travel on one side of the bridge for the duration. In addition, some night work will be necessary to avoid or reduce transit disruptions. PBOT and Goodfellow Brothers, Inc. are working closely with TriMet on these closures and will provide additional details as the dates approach. Substantial completion of the Bond Avenue Extension is anticipated in July.
If you have any questions or concerns about this project, contact PBOT Project Manager Steve Szigethy at email@example.com or 503-823-5117.
