Clackamas County to extend the 82nd Drive/Park Place pedestrian bridge closure until June 2012

Clackamas County Water Environment Services, on behalf of Clackamas County Service District No. 1 (CCSD #1) will extend the closure of the 82nd Drive/Park Place Pedestrian/Pipe Bridge between Gladstone and Oregon City until June 2012 to install a sewer force main pipeline and resolve safety concerns with the bridge structure.
Detour signs will continue to direct path users to an alternate route during the closure. 

The CCSD #1 RiverHealth Capacity Management Program including the pipeline, pump station, maintenance at the Kellogg Creek Water Pollution Control Plant in Milwaukie and the recently completed expansion of the Tri-City Water Pollution Control Plant in Oregon City are efforts to address capacity issues and public and regulatory demands for a clean and safe environment. 

The pedestrian/pipe bridge, owned by the District, provides an important link connecting CCSD #1 with the Tri-City Service District.
