A New Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge Along the Orange Line

We are building a safer new crossing for bikes and pedestrians over the rail tracks near the Clinton St/SE 12th Ave MAX Station.


An original overcrossing in Southeast Portland's Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood was eliminated due to the addition of the MAX Orange Line tracks. A new bridge designed by the City of Portland and TriMet will restore an important connection across the rail tracks for people walking and biking. The overcrossing will be constructed using remaining Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Transit Project funds.


Design on the bridge started in spring 2018. Construction will take place between spring 2019 and fall 2020. The project cost is estimated at approximately $15 million.


The bridge will span both the Union Pacific Railroad and TriMet’s MAX tracks, from SE 14th Avenue north of the tracks to SE 13th Place at SE Gideon Street.
