Springwater Trail segment finally reopens

A two-mile segment of Springwater Trail has reopened to bicycle and pedestrian traffic today after being closed nearly two and a half months for repaving.

Portland Parks & Recreation announced today that Springwater Trail between S.E. 28th Ave. and S.E. Linwood/Flavel Ave. has reopened, but trail users should be aware that there is still some finishing work to be done.

The trail was originally set to reopen on June 15, but an unusually wet June and production delays for fabricating the metal bollards pushed back the completion date.

On August 9, the Springwater Trail segment between S.E. Linwood/Flavel Ave. to I-205 will close.
