Springwater Corridor Trail is now complete from Portland to Boring

The final segment of the Springwater Corridor Trail - from Rugg Road to Boring Station Trailhead Park - is now complete and the trail is open for public use. The 21-mile paved trail now extends from downtown Portland to Boring.

The final project included widening and paving 2.25 miles of trail surface with asphalt and compacted gravel shoulders; significant drainage improvements; a new bridge deck and railings; improvements at the intersection of Telford and Haley Road and enhanced signage and street crossings.

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Transportation Enhancement Program and Metro's voter-approved 2006 Natural Areas Bond Measure provided funding for the project, with additional financial support from Clackamas County Parks. Portland Parks and Recreation owns the trail right-of-way.

A community event celebrating the completion of the trail project is scheduled for Feb. 1 at the Boring Station Trailhead Park. Visit the project website for details: www.clackamas.us/parks/springwater.html
