Rendering of the new Willamette River Bridge

Friday, June 28, 2013

Please join us for a community celebration

From ODOT-
It’s hard to believe that the new Whilamut Passage Bridge is opening in August!

We’ve scheduled two upcoming events to commemorate this occasion and hope you can join us: 

Opening ceremony with U.S. Rep. Peter DeFazio: 10 a.m., Friday, July 26

Community celebration and bridge walk: 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 3
A brief ceremony will start at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

Family friendly and fun for all ages, both events will take place in the Whilamut Natural Area of Alton Baker Park and will include brief presentations, project information and walking tours of the new northbound bridge.

Getting there:

The celebrations will be held north of the Knickerbocker Bridge in the Whilamut Natural Area of Alton Baker Park.

We encourage attendees to use alternate modes of transportation. There are nearby bus stops and many bicycle and pedestrian routes to the natural area. Senior and disabled parking will be located in Lot 9 off Leo Harris Parkway. A courtesy shuttle will transport those from the senior and disabled parking area to the event site.


Keep reading this blog to learn more about the festivities. We look forward to sharing this important day with you!
