From the Swan Island Transportation Management Association (TMA):
Big improvements are coming in the next few months to Swan Island – pedestrian and
bicycle access projects that will make getting to and around the Island safer and more fun.
Over the next several months,
- the Going to the River project will improve pedestrian and bike access along N Going Street from N Interstate Avenue,
- the Shipyard Spur and Ballast Avenue route will improve access to the Portland
Shipyards and the Swan Island Lagoon,
- and the Waud Bluff Trail will connect to the north end of Swan Island with a bridge
over the Union Pacific railroad line.
These projects will be constructed by the City of Portland with federal funds administered by the Oregon Department of Transportation.
To celebrate, we are throwing a party, and you’re invited! Please join us at Daimler
Trucks North America, 4747 N Channel Ave, on Wednesday, May 9 from 10am to 2pm
to enjoy good food and great music. City and regional agencies, transportation non-profits and others will be there to answer your questions. Come learn how these projects
will improve bike, pedestrian and transit access, making Swan Island an even better
place to work and explore 7 days a week!
