I-5 Pedestrian Bridge

The City plans to construct a pedestrian bridge over I-5 and a gateway plaza at its east landing in the Wilsonville Town Center. The pedestrian bridge will provide a critical east/west connection between the proposed Emerald Chain, a greenway that meanders through Town Center, and neighborhoods and the regional trail system to the west of I-5. The gateway plaza will provide a gathering space and gateway into the Wilsonville Town Center.

The bridge design will be highly visible to passing motorists, serving as a regional landmark in the heart of Wilsonville. Driving north on I-5, the bridge will mark the threshold of the Portland Metropolitan area, one of the first placemaking elements a traveler will experience after crossing the Willamette River. For travelers going south, the bridge will be the gateway to the Willamette Valley’s rich agricultural land and rural communities.

We are seeking input from the community now prior to beginning the design process to understand what you consider the most important elements in the project and how those should be incorporated into the future design. There will be future opportunities in the coming months to provide additional input as bridge and gateway designs are developed.
