Barbara Walker Crossing and Wildwood Trail

Closed: Barbara Walker Crossing and nearby sections of Wildwood Trail are temporarily closed. City engineers and staff continue to collaborate on repairing Portland Parks & Recreation (PPR)’s Barbara Walker Crossing, the bridge for people to use when crossing Burnside on the Wildwood Trail. Planning, permitting, and related work continue after a tree crashed down on top of the Crossing earlier this year.

PP&R tentatively plans to have completed repairs to the Barbara Walker Crossing to allow for a reopening around May 1, 2021.
