Welcome to theFrench Prairie Bridge Project
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.
The project aims to address the following questions:
- Where are the preferred landing points for the bridge?
- What is the preferred bridge type?
- What is the estimated cost of the preferred bridge and how might its construction be funded?
Over the last six months project leaders at the City of Wilsonville, the US FHWA and ODOT have carefully reviewed the project’s approach.read more
