Leaving the area better than we found it

The parkland surrounding the Willamette River Bridge replacement project is much beloved by athletes, commuters and outdoor enthusiasts. These same park paths and natural areas also play a very important role in our construction story.

Jyll Smith, ODOT public information officer, explains that while construction has temporary impacted Alton Baker Park and the Whilamut Natural Area, it will also lead to valuable improvements when the bridge work is done.

In this video you can see what construction crews are doing now and will accomplish in the future for this is important parkland around the bridge. Improvements include stream restoration and a temporary fish ladder, informative kiosks and visual enhancements along the Canoe Canal path and waterway.
