Three Bridges open for bikers and hikers

Trail now open between Ardenwald and Sellwood
by: Eric Norberg,

The 'Three Bridges' were officially opened, connecting the Springwater Trail sections between Sellwood and Ardenwald, on the morning of Thursday, October 19th.

The triple ribbon cutting featured many civic officials, including Congressman Earl Blumenauer, Portland Mayor Tom Potter, and SMILE President Nancy Walsh.

After that, attendees sauntered back westward--across the rust-toned bridge over the Union Pacific tracks, foreground; across the Tabasco-colored sweeping arched span over McLoughlin Boulevard, background; and in the far background, over the bridge crossing Johnson Creek.
