Hearing to Consider New Willamette Bridge Connecting Lake Oswego and Oak Grove

October 21, 2019

Are you interested in a pedestrian/bike/emergency vehicle bridge that connects Milwaukie/Oak Grove and Lake Oswego?

The project planning committee will vote this Friday, Oct. 25 on whether or not to continue the study for the New Willamette Crossing or kill it altogether. 

If you are interested in attending the hearing and need transportation, please RSVP to ride the bus from Templeton to Oregon City:

Benefits of building the new bridge include:

  • Provides critical access for emergency and fire vehicles– reducing pressure on current roadways and improving safety for walkers and cyclists 
  • Supports healthier lifestyles, a healthier environment 
  • Creates a transportation connection for the future that reduces commute times
