About Earthquake Ready Burnside Bridge

Thank you for participating in this survey about the Earthquake Ready Burnside Bridge feasibility study. Watch the video to learn about why Multnomah County is considering options to retrofit or replace the Burnside Bridge to create a resilient river crossing that can survive a major earthquake and function as a regional lifeline.

An Earthquake Resilient River Crossing

Burnside Street is a regional lifeline transportation route designated to enable emergency response, evacuation and recovery soon after a major disaster. The route requires a river crossing that can withstand an earthquake to support emergency services, reunite families, move goods, enable commerce and help our economy recover. This study will evaluate a variety of river crossing ideas and identify the best options for creating a resilient lifeline crossing that will serve our community for generations.
