Roehr Park Pathway Project - Complete

November 10, 2020 - Roehr Park is now open to the public! Please visit our newly improved park to enjoy the beautiful views as you stroll the riverfront along the Willamette River.

The pathway project will improve access to trails by regrading and replacing 1600 lineal feet of asphalt paved trail in addition to:

  • Removal of three small wood bridges and construction of one new pre-fab wood bridge;
  • Culvert installations; and
  • Improved signage and landscaping.
Project Background / Summary: 

Roehr Park sits on a developed riverfront along the Willamette River. Due to the decline of Roehr pathway, Council directed Parks staff to make improvements to the area. 

Project Updates: 

November 10, 2020 Update: Roehr Park is now open to the public! The trail improvement and bridge replacement project has been completed. The pathway alignment and the original width has been restored and the pathway re-paved. The two footbridges have been replaced with culverts to address the water and flooding issues and a new pedestrian footbridge has been installed. 

October 28, 2020 Update: The asphalt paving is complete and the construction of the bridge is finished. Final planting and seeding is currently in progress. 

October 2020 Update: The pathway is paved from the footbridge to the endpoint. Bioswales and retaining walls are installed. Bridge construction has begun. This project is scheduled for completion in December 2020.

July 2020 Update: Protective fencing is in place and erosion control measures are being implemented. The culverts and footbridge will be installed in the near future and repaving will begin shortly afterward. Please note that this is an active construction site with many hazards. During construction, the pathway will be closed past the amphitheater. 

The project is expected to be completed in November.
