February 1, 2014 | Twine Wire, Boring, OR -- Intertwine Partner North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District celebrated the completion of the Springwater Corridor Trail with the inauguration of the final 2.25 mile segment from Rugg Road to Boring Station Trailhead Park.
"It's exciting to see the vision of this incredible urban trail finally complete" said Jeroen Kok, Strategic Planning, Development and Resource Manager. "The trail extends across a very interesting and varied landscape across the Portland region and will be enjoyed by users of all ages and abilities for years to come. Clackamas County is very proud to be able to complete the last segment of this outstanding project that so many people have envisioned for so long."
The Oregon Department of Transportation's Transportation Enhancement Program and Metro's voter-approved 2006 Natural Areas Bond Measure provided funding for the project, with additional financial support from Clackamas County Parks. Portland Parks and Recreation owns the trail right-of-way.
Other project partners include Murray, Smith & Associates, Inc., C&M Excavation and Utilities LLC, Metro, Clackamas County Department of Transportation, Clackamas County Board of Commissioners, Portland Parks & Recreation, the City of Gresham and Oregon State Parks & Recreation. Community support generated by the Friends of Boring Station was instrumental in the completion of this project.
