Develop a paved biking and walking path along the Columbia Slough in north Portland. The new path is 10-feet wide with gravel shoulders and hugs the Columbia Slough for about 1.2 miles. It offers access to wildlife and views of Mt St Helens, Mt Adams, and Mt Hood. In addition to entry points at Vancouver and Denver Avenues, there is a spur out to N. Schmeer at Whitaker Rd.
The project cost an estimated $610,000; about $460,000 was paid for by ODOT as part of the Community Enhancement Fund from the I-5/Delta Park freeway widening project that began in 2002. The remainder was funded by PP&R.
