The county will take public comments on the plan at February meetings and through an online survey.Multnomah County wants to hear what you have to say about its 20-year plan for its six Willamette River bridges.


An online survey about the county’s proposed plan can be found at multco.us/bridgeplan. From Feb. 12 to 26, the county will take public comments on the plan. The board of commissioners will consider adopting the plan as part of the county’s Transportation Capital Improvement Plan and Program during the annual budget process in May.

More information about the transportation capital plan is at multco.us/transportation-planning.

County planners have developed a draft 20-year capital improvement plan for the Broadway, Burnside, Hawthorne, Morrison, Sauvie Island and Sellwood bridges. The plan identifies a 20-year program of projects and funding needs to maintain and seismically retrofit the bridges.

The draft plan will be available Feb. 12 on the project website: www.multco.us/bridgeplan.

Commissioners will be briefed on the plan during their Feb. 12 meeting, which begins at 10 a.m. in the board room of the Multnomah Building, 501 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd. A public briefing on the plan is scheduled at 6 p.m. Feb. 12 in Room 315 of the Multnomah Building.

The plan includes 53 capital projects with a total cost of about $1.3 billion. Projects are prioritized in five-year increments. The costliest project would replace or rehabilitate the Burnside Bridge between 2025 and 2029. The bridge is a designated lifeline route and is vulnerable in a major earthquake. A funding plan will be developed after board action on the capital plan.
