Work underway on Flanders Crossing bridge in NW Portland

The $9.5 million Flanders Crossing Bridge will be a 24-feet wide, 200 feet long bridge with two-way access for pedestrians and people on bikes across I-405 in the Pearl District.

Construction started in early July on Flanders Crossing, the bike- friendly bridge across the I-405 underpass in Northwest Portland.

Crews contracted by the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) are building a 24-foot wide, 200 foot long bridge with two-way access for pedestrians and people on bikes. The bridge will serve as a seismic lifeline route in the case of a major earthquake.
