Sellwood Bridge Breaks Ground Today, Fireboat Offers Water Canon Salute



Fireboat David Campbell provides a water display to celebrate the beginning of the Sellwood Bridge Replacement Project

This morning at the Sellwood Riverfront Park, members of the public and Portland Mayor Sams Adams, County Chair Jeff Kogen, County Commissioner Deborah Kafoury, and the U.S. Department of Transportation Undersecretary Polly Trottenberg gathered to celebrate the beginning steps of the Sellwood Bridge project.

This month, work will begin on the $268 million project to replace the 86-year-old bridge. The ground breaking event this morning officially announced a $17.7 million federal TIGER grant for the project from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Sellwood Bridge was the only project in Oregon to receive a TIGER grant and received the 7th largest grant out of 46 awards.

Portland Fire & Rescue’s Station 6 (NW Industrial) brought out the Fireboat David Campbell to cap off the celebration with a water display.
