French Prairie Bridge ProjectProject Team Finalizing Resources Field Work

Following our second set of committee meetings in May, French Prairie Bridge project team members have been hard at work to complete the archaeology and historic resources field work for our next set of meetings.

The archaeology and historic resource information gathered through the field work is a required component of the environmental process to select the preferred bridge alignment. As a result, the bridge alignment recommendation must be based on a proper assessment of the collected field data.

In the meantime, project team members have been providing updates to community events and organizations where possible. One recent update was to the Boones Ferry Park Master Plan Open House, and another to the Westside Economic Alliance Economic Development Bike Tour.

Please let us know if you would like to be added to the project mailing list, or would like a briefing to your community organization. You can reach Project Manager Zach Weigel at 503.570.1565 or by email at
