It has been confirmed with Union Pacific Railroad that the demo date for the Gideon Pedestrian Bridge is Tuesday, November 12th. This will require closing the pedestrian bridge on Monday, November 11th.

There will be signage up a few days before the closure directing pedestrians to the new routes, either 12th Avenue or Powell.

Jean Senechal Biggs, with the Bureau of Transportation, is working with her colleagues to include a new Gideon Pedestrian Bridge to  the next update of the Transportation System Plan (TSP). The TSP is the long-range plan to guide transportation investments in Portland.
