When completed the Red Electric Trail bridge will allow pedstrians and bicyclists to travel safely between Southwest Bertha Boulevard and Southwest Capitol Highway in the Hillsdale area.

Developers wondering how the city of Portland uses system development charges collected from new construction projects need look no further than the West Hills.
