Willamette River Crossing


Portland Water Bureau


Winterbrook leads the local land use and environmental permitting tasks for a planned new seismic-resilient water main below the Willamette River.  Winterbrook prepared an analysis showing that the project should not be subject to City conditional use or river review approvals, and the City’s supervising planner agreed. Winterbrook provides land use guidance for the design team and assisted with preparation of a comprehensive Permit Plan for the project. Winterbrook has coordinated closely with PBOT and Portland Parks on related projects and permits, such as the PBOT Naito Bike Bikeway Project and the Non-Park Use Permit.
