Sellwood Bridge Update- They’ve handed it over to the goats


aaaBridgeUpdateButtonCloser, closer, closer… the Sellwood Bridge is on schedule to completion in November.  It’s just down to the detail stuff now.  The south side sidewalk is being finished, traffic signs are coming in, the Taylor’s Ferry Turnaround is a fading bad dream, and the old Staff Jennings property is being turned into a green space.  But the coolest thing that happened this month was near the Sellwood Harbor Condominiums on the south side of the bridge, where among the other work a herd of goats finished munching the blackberry and shrubbery blocking the eastbank trail.  You know it’s a Portland project when there are goats involved.goats-are-used-to-remove-invasive-blackberries-near-the-sellwood-bridge eastbank-trail-by-sellwood-harbor-is-visible-after-goats-removed-blackberries goats-removing-blackberries-along-trail-near-sellwood-bridge

The project is scheduled to end in November, but until then Multnomah County maintains the definitive website on everything related to the Sellwood Bridge Replacement project at  Construction and closure alerts, archived information, and other resources are all available 24/7 for your convenience.  If you’re looking for something that’s not on the website, you can contact Mike Pullen (, 503-209-4111) or visit
