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.

Since kicking off the project in winter 2020, we've gathered your ideas on important themes and design elements, creating different bridge and plaza concepts for the community to consider. Based on this feedback (summarized below under the Project Updates tab), the City selected the Tied Arch concept for the bridge and a combination of the Drops and Ripples and River Oxbow plaza concepts to move forward for more detailed design work.
