Project Introduction

The French Prairie Bridge is a proposed bicycle/pedestrian/emergency-access crossing of the Willamette River west of the Interstate 5 Boone Bridge in Wilsonville. The City of Wilsonville is leading a project to plan and develop preliminary designs for this proposed new bridge.

  • What is the preferred bridge type?
  • What is the estimated cost of the preferred bridge and how might its construction be funded?
