Footbridge Over Burnside

Portland’s 30-mile Wildwood Trail suffers a major flaw: its crossing at Burnside Road. With an average 18,000 vehicles passing daily, hikers are forced to dodge traffic in their pursuit of nature. The Footbridge over Burnside would enhance access to nature by making this crossing safe.

The Portland Parks Foundation is spearheading the effort to build a bridge at this intersection before a serious tragedy occurs. A committee of local citizens is leading the effort to make this project possible.

Special Notice:  Thank you to our hundreds of donors for your incredible support during our crowdfunding campaign!  You just blew past our original goal of $150,000, contributing $184,916 online--earning our anonymous donor's match of $175,000--for a total crowdfunding impact of $359,916!  See below for a full list of everyone who donated to the crowdfund.
