Possible future Beaverton / Portland bike commute route

Posted by Peter W on May 22, 2007

The Red Electric Trail could be a possible future connection between Beaverton and Portland for recreational trail users as well as commuters.

Unfortunately, according to this article in the Portland Tribune, the trail could take $17 million dollars and 20 years to complete.

It would be interesting to compare the cost of this project with other trail and transportation projects. I’m not sure how the $17 million compares, but I know 20 years seems like a long time. I wonder if there is any way to make it happen faster (or cheaper, for that matter).

Another article about it is this one from BikePortland.org.
