A large crowd of excited Portlanders attended Mayor Adams' grand opening celebration of the 700-foot long "Hooley" bridge. The pedestrian and bike bridge reconnects the historic Lair Hill neighborhood to the Willamette River and South Waterfront District, OHSU, and the aerial tram. Officially, the US Congresswoman Darlene Hooley Pedestrian Bridge at Gibbs St is named for the US Congresswoman whose work was pivotal in completing the project.
Speakers at the event included Jim Gardner (SW Neighborhood Association), Don Baack (SW Trails), Earl Blumenhauer (US Congress), Mark Williams (OHSU), Darlene Hooley (former US Congresswoman), and Mayor Sam Adams.
