SW Boones Ferry Bridge & Restoration Project

Sewer and Stormwater
Environmental Services has completed construction of a new bridge on SW Boones Ferry Road where it crosses Tryon Creek. This project created and restored connections for fish, wildlife, and people.

This project was completed in the Spring of 2021.

Project Complete - SW Boones Ferry Road Reopens

The City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services is proud to announce the completion of a major habitat restoration and bridge-building project over Tryon Creek and the reopening of SW Boones Ferry Road at SW Arnold Street on April 16, 2021.

To view construction photos, visit our Flickr album here. The SW Boones Ferry Bridge & Restoration Flickr album will be periodically updated with milestone pictures.

Additional Work Occurring in 2023

Environmental Services crews are returning to the area in the summer of 2023. Now that Tryon Creek is flowing freely at this location, crews need to return to ensure that the creek is passable for fish species moving upstream to the new habitat areas opened up by the bridge project.

For more information on this additional work, please visit the Tryon Creek Fish Passage Project webpage.

Project Area

Construction of the SW Boones Ferry Bridge & Restoration project is on SW Boones Ferry Road, between SW Arnold Street and SW Comus Court.
