The section of the Springwater Trail called the 'Sellwood Gap' is almost completed

DAVID F. ASHTON - Summer-like weather made it easy for contractors to lay pervious asphalt along the new segment in the Sellwood Springwater Gap. This spot is near S.E. 11th. Taking advantage of good weather, contractors working for Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) continued building a wide paved trail in the unimproved area of the Springwater Trail, between S.E. 9th and 11th Avenues in Sellwood, beside the Oregon Pacific Railroad tracks, in April and May.

"By June, chain link fencing along the new trail section is expected to be installed, and wood bollards to restrict automobile access along the trail should be as well," said PP&R Community Engagement Coordinator Ken Rumbaugh.

Rumbaugh told THE BEE the final touches in addition to those will include:

· Path and street signage

· Path and street striping, and pavement markers

· Patching of street asphalt where needed

The project remains on schedule for a July 1st completion date, Rumbaugh told THE BEE.
