The bridge will span approximately 700 feet, and will have a landing on the west side near the intersection of SW Gibbs Street and SW Kelly Avenue and on the east side near the intersection of SW Gibbs Street and SW Moody Avenue (you can see the exact location of the bridge on this map). It will make life much easier for pedestrians and cyclists, improving safety and convenience.The CGI video below gives a good idea of what it will look like, but you can see a bunch of extra pics here. It should be done in about a year. Via BikePortland.
