Springwater Trail construction extended, expected to open Aug.6

(Updated July 29, 2010) Construction on the Springwater Trail between S.E. 28th and S.E. Linwood avenues now will not be completed until Aug. 6.

The Portland Parks and Recreation say the contractors had a delay in the production of the metal bollards and should be getting it installed, along with striping over the next couple of weeks.

With the shoulder rock in place and making the trail safer for pedestrian and bicyclist, contractors will not be completely barricading the trail while waiting for the bollard installation. Contractors will close the trail and ask users to leave when the bollard installation and striping work resumes.

The project began on May 24, but has been delayed twice before because of spring’s wetter than usual weather.
