Sellwood Bridge Update- Some things never change…

We’re constantly asked about the status of the Sellwood Bridge, but there’s little solid information to be had.  The last information from the official Multnomah County website is from July, when the draft Environmental Impact Statement had been submitted to ODOT.  We do know that there was a nighttime closure in August so that the largest cracks could be temporarily epoxied shut.  Wikipedia purports to have the most recent information, saying “…the projected completion date for a new bridge is 2012.”  Of course, the issue of funding the new bridge still remains to be settled.  At this rate, we’ll cross the Willamette on glaciers before we cross on a repaired bridge.  In the meantime, if you’re an optimist, you can look for more information at http://www.sellwoodbridge.org, or click here to see some of the competing bridge designs.
