Portland's Eastbank Esplanade will be closed February 1 for repairs.
Portland Parks and Recreation will close the segment between the Hawthorne Bridge and Steel Bridge for improvements and repairs. The trail will reopen to the public on (or by) April 1, 2019.
“The Eastbank Esplanade is treasured by Portlanders for both commuting and recreation,” says Parks Commissioner Nick Fish. “This long-planned project will improve safety and park amenities, replace invasive vegetation with native species, and restore our public art. I want to thank our partners at BES, PBOT, and RACC for working together on this important project.”
Project work will include:
• PP&R replacing degraded surfaces and amenities, including repairing concrete
• PP&R repairing lights
• PP&R removing graffiti and trash
