Project impacts affecting Springwater Corridor Trail

Between July 9 and October 31, 2018, the Springwater Trail at the project site was closed as a through route.  

BES worked with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to identify two main recommended alternate routes during the closure of the corridor. 

  • The Willamette Greenway Trail on the west side of the Willamette River
  • The new SE 19th Avenue Greenway connecting to the 17th Avenue Bike Lane on the east side of the river

Pedestrian, bicycle, and auto access to the Oaks Amusement Park and the Oregon Yacht Club floating home community was maintained throughout the project.
