Bridge Over Columbia Boulevard
City of Portland, Metro, and the Oregon Department of Transportation
This multi-agency project was designed to create a pedestrian and bicycle bridge to help connect North Portland’s greenway. This bridge will connect Chimney Park with newly-created natural amenities in St. John’s Prairie.
LCA helped design a public engagement plan that featured targeted outreach with area schools, and translated materials delivered door-to-door to meet and engage residents near to the project area. Through interviews with stakeholders and meetings with community-based organizations in the area, LCA helped capture the priorities and community values of the project. In addition, LCA designed two open house events, one in-person with a site tour and food from neighborhood vendors, as well as one virtual open-house that featured video from the site and detailed renderings of the bridge design.
