Construction on Peninsula Crossing Trail in St. Johns

@Jonathan_Maus could you go by and investigate what they’re doing? There’s considerable construction activity happening right on the trail for the past week or two and I am wondering what its all about. Can’t find anything in the mainstream press.

Sure. I will try to swing by soon. Are you talking about construction by campers or by official city crews?

Actual licensed contractors. Along Lombard, there used to be just a single bollard. They just installed heavy duty swing gates along the path entry points and boulders to keep cars from getting around by entering from the side.

I don’t know which agency/companies are responsible for initiating this or for what purpose.

In case folks didn’t see it, here’s the story on this - https://bikeportland.org/2022/08/09/anti-car-gates-block-entry-to-peninsula-crossing-trail-path-361265
