Planning work will begin this month on the trail route east of Alpenrose Dairy, which means the existing informal trail will be closed to facilitate this effort. Click on Red Electric Trail Closure Flyer to view complete details about closure dates, locations, and work being done on each segment from Portland Parks and Recreation.
We still need to work with the City and State on the sections of the Red Electric Trail east of Hillsdale, and areas west of Hillsdale that will connect SW Bertha Blvd (Little Bertha) to the Trail east of Alpenrose. A summary of segments and an overview of the planned route can be found on this interactive map.
We appreciate your support as SWTrails continues to advocate for safe walking and bicycling in southwest Portland. Thank you to all in our community who have supported our work towards completing the Red Electric Trail from the Willamette River to where it will connect with the Fanno Creek Trail in the Garden Home neighborhood of southwest Portland. Thanks to Senator Burdick, Portland received a grant from the State of Oregon for $750,000 designated to planning the Trail east of Alpenrose.
Look for more exciting updates on this in the coming months.
