A 700 Foot Pedestrian And Bike Bridge For Portland


Good news for Portland residents as the construction of a 700 foot bridge connecting Lair Hill neighborhood to the South Waterfront District is commencing this month. The Gibbs Street Pedestrian bridge will be used exclusively by walkers and bike commuters and would be made in a steel box girder style, featuring an elevator and stairways.

This innovative pedestrian and bicycle bridge will run adjacent to the aerial tram and is expected to be ready in a year’s time.
