Since THPRD has completed the initial phases of the Westside Trail Bridge feasibility study, staff will soon begin a feasibility study for the Westside Trail sections that will connect north and south of the bridge. Combined, these studies will ultimately help THPRD secure funds and develop a bridge that will help connect 25 miles of our Regional Trails system for pedestrians and bicyclists to reach destinations across Washington County.
Currently, THPRD is seeking funding for the Westside Trail Bridge, as well as sections of the Beaverton Creek Trail through the Regional Flexible Funds and the Metro Trails Bond. THPRD and other agencies across the region are competing for this pool of $67.3 million in bond funding. To determine which of the many different projects should be funded, Metro is seeking community input on these future THPRD trails and other trail projects across the region. Share your input on this funding by Tuesday, June 21 through one of these four ways:
- Take an online survey available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Russian and Korean.
