    Should have been constructed years ago. Will be an incredible asset to both communities.

    This connection is greatly needed for those who must commute to work across this river. You find yourself either driving ten miles up or ten miles down to even cross the river thus making your commute to work close to twenty miles one way.

    I live in Lake Oswego and work in Milwaukie and really need this to be a viable route to work in order to bike. PLEASE MAKE THIS CONNECTION!!!

    Creating a safe route for cyclists and pedestrians to cross the river here would be hugely valuable. Do it do it!

    I am moving to Oak Grove. I have an 8 month old daughter, two dogs and we all love hiking. Since Tryon Creek Park is directly across the river, we thought that kayaking/canoeing across the river would work. Otherwise we would have to go all the way up to the Sellwood bridge and back down to get there. We also go to the Lake Oswego library and would love to continue to get there wit out getting in a car and traveling half an hour when it's right across the river. We would appreciate it so much if a bridge was built here for cyclist and pedestrian use! Thank you for considering this!

    I have a 2 hour commute on my bike, that's 4 hours a day! This would reduce it to a 2.5 hour a day commute...that's 390 hours in commutes it would save me over the year, or 16.25 days of my life cycling per year!

    Yes please. So many of us would use the bridge. It would cut down on ride from the east side to the west side!

    Please don't consider removing this project. It's a great parallel route for Lake and the Milwuakie Expressway. And it's flat!

    This bridge is a potential for bikes and pedestrians connecting Lake Oswego with Milwaukie to light rail. Currently, The Oregon City or the Sellwood bridges are the only two connectors, and also requires riding on Ore. 43.

    Look at all these overwhelmingly positive comments. Don't limit this possible crossing to the railroad bridge. Please consider a separate ped/bike bridge nearby. Oak Grove Blvd could be extended over a Ped/Bike bridge to Rohr Park in LO.

    Ped / Bike Bridge on Tillamook Branch Line (TBL)
    has some merit but needs significant coordination for exit points on either side of Willamette River. The approximate elevation of TBL Bridge is 95 ft above sea level (ASL) based upon a USGS benchmark on OR 43 150 yards south of OR 43 / Briarwood Rd. Elevation of TBL when it crosses OR 43 in LO is 110 ft ASL. Consideration MUST be given for wheel chair access which means what are the sight lines for recombinant type bikes in order to stop. Also what are the speeds for bikes. Trains are limited to 5-10 mph on this track segment due to rail / roadbed condition plus curves. Further how to police and emergency services get access? All attributes of the System of Law Enforcement and Deterrence (SLED) must be identified, labeled, described, defined and discussed with case studies. Such studies need to verify and validate the SLED. It would also help the public discussion about access to and from this bridge if a percent slope map were made publicly accessible as the Birdshill CPO / NA has asked for about two to three years. Concepts and justifying this project as part of a grand loop via Willamette Shore Line (WSL) through Elk Rock Tunnel (ERT) to Sellwood Bridge and Milwaukie need to examine geology of ERT. Least it form Elk Rock Rapids at Willamette River mile 19.0. Further this project if implemented should also consider a bridge parallel to Orange Line Bridge across Kellog Creek. To get off the elevation of the TBL drop down to elevation of US 99E for an at grade crossing after spending the money for this Willamette River crossing is questionable.

    This would be an excellent addition to the planned bike path from LO to Portland that would also serve the folks on the east side of the river as well.

    I have biked in Portland for many years and find feel that that McLoughlin area is very closed off to the rest of the surrounding areas i.e.: Lake Oswego, and Portland. I would love to see the growing momentum of families and people in the community to have access to more bike friendly routes that "bridge" pardon the pun, to our neighbors to the west (Lake Oswego) as well as Portland. Having a bike bridge connecting Gladstone to Lake Oswego would be monumental for the growing bike community. Also a great opportunity for local businesses to reap the benefits of bike traffic in both Lake Oswego and Gladstone.

    It would be so handy to have a pedestrian/bike bridge here!

    This would be a great asset to Clackamas county. It would help fellow citizens and our government officials show our dedication to a sense of community, sustainability, our environment, and allow us to better highlight & experience our county's hidden beauty.

    I never even realized this would be an option, but it would be fantastic, not only for the region but for local Milwaukie/Oak Grove residents to access Lake Oswego businesses. Everybody wins!

    This would be a facility of regional importance, a fantastic addition to bicycle infrastructure in the region. So awesome an idea I almost just wrote "DUH!"

    this isn't a Planning comment, but safety could be GREATLY improved for a very low cost by ENFORCING CURRENT SPEED LIMITS. Motorists drive too fast and too aggressively on McLoughlin

    This would be so great for park connectivity. You could bike from the Milwaukie area to easily get to Tryon Creek and MS Young parks. Increased mobility always gets a yes in my book!

    Sidewalks for kids going to school - no brainer. Let's keep Torbank safe, slow and quiet though, and not create another wide fast Park/Courtney by entertaining thoughts of an automobile connector all the way to McLoughlin as another comment mentioned. People, bikes, paths make sense, a huge traffic artery through the neighborhood doesn't. One of the nicest parts of the entire trolley trail in this area.
