Bridge of the Gods and Pedestrians?


The Bridge of the Gods provides a great way for cars to get from one side of the Columbia River Gorge to the other. Have you ever tried to walk across it? The experience of walking across the Bridge of the Gods is less than friendly with a narrow walkway, vehicle trafficked and overall an unsettling experience. A few associations have teamed up to raise money for the conduction of a feasibility study for a pedestrian bridge, learn about the associations working towards this project below.
The group, comprised of Friends of the Columbia Gorge, the Pacific Crest Trail Association, the City of Stevenson and the Port of Cascade Locks, is one step closer to conducting a feasibility study to determine if an additional pedestrian crossing can happen. The committee successfully raised $18,000 needed to hire the services of an engineer to conduct the study. Friends matched the National Park Service, Lewis and Clark National Heritage Trail Unit's $2,500 contribution, and remains a strong partner in this process.
