WHPacific’s Portland office has been awarded the Bethany Creek Trail #2 design project. Led by the Landscape Studio, this new community trail will extend THPRD’s Westside Trail along a BPA powerline corridor, providing off-street connections to the new and developing community of North Bethany. Walkers, runners, cyclists and others will be able to use the paved trail for a variety of transportation options, including leisure activity as well as commuting to work or to school.
Project design challenges include crossing a major drainage way, design of a safe mid-block pedestrian crossing of a busy roadway, providing ADA accessible trail grades and permitting in two separate counties. Amenities will include trail head park facilities and wayfinding signage.
