Project Background

42nd Ave Bridge & Corridor - section C

The current bridge over NE Lombard Street is on a recommended Emergency Transportation Route but is vulnerable to earthquakes. Additionally, freight uses the bridge as a connection between Lombard and Columbia, but the bridge’s low height and weight restrictions hamper freight transportation. The bridge also provides insufficient space for people walking and biking. This new connection would fill the gap between the Holman neighborhood greenway and upcoming 47th Ave protected bikeway and provide better access for freight, walking, and biking.
