Portland's Bridge Without Cars

In less than three months, TriMet will add the MAX Green Line, the region's fifth light rail line. This will connect Clackamas Town Center to Portland State University.

In 2015, Phase II of the Green Line will link Portland to northern Clackamas County through Milwaukie. Known as the South Corridor project, it will include a transit bridge with pedestrian and bicycle access that will cross the Willamette River between the Marquam and Ross Island Bridges.

TriMet has made a preliminary design choice of a cable-stay bridge, but there is many design decisions still to be made. Here are two events that are open to the public.
