42nd Ave Bridge & Corridor

 Current 42nd Ave Bridge

What’s happening now? 

PBOT has hired DEA Inc. as a design consultant. The bridge design process has begun and is expected to be completed in 2021.  

Project Background and Description: 

The current bridge over NE Lombard Street is vulnerable to earthquakes and is on a recommended Emergency Transportation Route. Additionally, it is a key freight connection between Lombard and Columbia. Both weight restricted and at a low height, this bridge impacts freight transportation and has insufficient space for people walking and biking. This new connection would fill the gap between the Holman neighborhood greenway and upcoming 47th Ave protected bikeway, and provide better access for freight, walking, and biking. 

Construction Date:  Fall-Winter 2021 

Current Project Phase: Design

Total Project Budget: $ 17,000,000.00
