There are two train bridges in north Portland across the Willamette, one decommissioned I believe. Are either accessible to bicycles? Anyone tried crossing them and have experiences to share?
We're looking to see if either bridge can be used by a bicycle to get back & forth from the east to west side for Sauvie
Island bike rides. We'd prefer to use the decommissioned bridge, obviously. While our main goal is personal, a long term idea would be to get the decomissioned bridge open and adapted to foot/bicycle traffic to make the St. Helens area of
North Portland more accessible.
Anyone with any ideas or experience with this? I could be wrong about the number of bridges and so on, I've been trying to research it via Google but without luck.
Some people we know might do a stealth excursion to try it out, but if someone already has, we'd love to hear of the possible ways and pitfalls.
Replies or email appreciated. Thanks! Rob
