Good news for East County bicyclists (and for the rest of us who like to ride out that way):
"Gresham will add sections to Gresham-Fairview Trail"
"Gresham will receive more than $2 million in federal funds to build two more sections of the Gresham-Fairview Trail, a 5.2-mile pedestrian and bike path linking the Springwater Corridor and the Columbia River, the city said Monday.
"The east metro area's first significant north-south trail would be a crucial piece to the 40-Mile Loop, a series of trails throughout the metro area. The Gresham-Fairview Trail will consist of a 12-foot-wide asphalt swatch extending from the Linneman Station trail head north through Rockwood to Marine Drive, just west of Blue Lake Park.
"The first section, 1.24 miles accessible from Halsey St. at 201st Avenue to Burnside Road, is scheduled for completion later this month, with...
a dedication ceremony planned for National Trails Day on June 2."
