Welcome and Project Background
Welcome to the Oregon City – West Linn Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge Concept Plan Online Open House and Community Survey.
The project will select a preferred bridge alignment for people walking, biking, and rolling across the Willamette River to connect the communities of Oregon City and West Linn, enhance safety, and improve regional connectivity.
People who walk, bike, and roll across the Willamette River between Oregon City and West Linn currently use the Arch Bridge (OR 43) which does not have dedicated bike paths or sidewalks that meet the Americans with Disabilities Act standards to provide access to people using mobility devices. To address this, Oregon City, West Linn, Clackamas County, Metro and ODOT are exploring potential new bridge alignments between the Willamette Falls and the I-205 Abernethy Bridge.
The open house and community survey are now closed. Thank you for providing your input on walking, biking and rolling (using personal supports such as wheelchairs or walkers or micromobility devices such as e-scooters) in your community and the potential bridge alignments!
The study area consists of culturally and historically significant area that stretches between the Willamette Falls and the I-205 Abernethy Bridge.
