Earthquake Ready Burnside Bridge Owner’s Representative

The Burnside Bridge in downtown Portland, OR, was originally built in the 1920s and currently carries approximately 44,000 vehicles, three bus lines, and more than 2,000 pedestrians and cyclists a day. As the vital link across the Willamette River along the Burnside Corridor, replacing the aging bascule bridge has become a top priority for Multnomah County.

STV is providing owner’s representative services for the design and construction of a new seismically resilient signature bridge retaining the large movable span over the navigation channel to fit in the existing footprint. The firm’s scope of services includes development of the RFP for the architectural and engineering consultant and construction manager/general contractor contracts. During the design phase, STV’s services include project and program management as well as technical and engineering support to make certain that all project specifications are met and that the county’s schedule and budget are maintained.
