The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) announced today that the Gideon Overcrossing is now open.
The Gideon Overcrossing is a bike and pedestrian bridge that provides a new north–south connection above the rail tracks near the Clinton St / SE 12th Ave MAX Station. It spans from SE 13th Place at Gideon Street on the south side to SE 14th Avenue on the north.
This new bridge provides an alternative to the at-grade crossing at SE Milwaukie/11th/12th Avenues, especially when trains are blocking the intersection. For more details, check out the PBOT press release.
