|July 2017 (44.9384, -123.0454) Minto Island Bridge|
In 2008 several design options were studied. In 2010 a 600 ft long tied arch with a 14 ft wide deck was selected. In 2011 the city obtained a permit to cross over the slough. In 2012 OBEC Consulting was hired to complete the design of the bridge. Construction (by Legacy Contracting) began in 2015 but delays set the project back a year. Even small delays can ruin schedules since work in sloughs are limited to a few months out of the year. The bridge was finally opened in May of 2017.
