Oregon is an amazing place to ride a bike not just because of the work of local and state governments.

The Sellwood Bridge Project

The Sellwood Bridge is in desperate need of repair or replacement. After a long process, a final decision is due soon on a new bridge's alignment and design. In recent weeks this process has become contentious because two groups are being pitted against one another.

A group of condo owners who live on either side of the bridge have been aggressively supporting an alignment that would move the bridge a block or more north, saving their property from demolition but having major impacts on other parts of the neighborhood.

This week we talk with a group of Sellwood neighbors who are opposed to this plan and have organized a grassroots movement to rebuild the bridge in its current alignment. We look at the sustainability and livability issues of where the new Sellwood Bridge is built.
