Riverfront beat: What’s up along the Clark Path

Written May 25th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

So what’s new on my riverfront beat, you may be wondering. Besides a doll having been propped up and left by the side of the Dave Clark Path?


Bike path lines: An idea worth copying

Written April 16th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

Here’s a helpful little detail Albany might want to copy on couple blind curves on the riverside Dave Clark Bike Path: A center line intended to keep cyclists and others from possibly running into each other. I happened to notice such a line on ODOT’s Bikeway along Highway 34. The painted stripe goes down the […]


Pump station on path worries neighbors

Written February 12th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

Some Albany residents have become concerned about plans to build a sewer pump station on the Dave Clark Path near where they live in the Iron Works townhouses on Water Avenue. But the design is more than half done, and the city says changing it would cause delays and a significant increase in the cost.


$13 million to prevent sewer overflows

Written December 22nd, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Concerns on Clark Path: The city listens

Written September 21st, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Trash left by transients along the riverfront and Dave Clark Path may be an intractable problem, but Albany city officials are not giving up. They will consider even cameras to deter or detect illegal camping.


No big deal: Noted on the riverfront

Written May 7th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Some days there is nothing to see on my riverfront beat. But sometimes there is, even if it’s nothing big. Three items caught my attention Monday afternoon.


Hate to see that start again

Written November 27th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

That’s the last thing Albany’s struggling downtown needs — taggers. And yet here we are, on Monday afternoon, looking across Second Avenue near Ellsworth, where somebody with a can of red spray paint had gone to work on a cabinet holding, presumably, traffic signal controls.


Riverbank under trash attack again

Written March 30th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Once again the Willamette riverbank off the Dave Clark Path in Albany has been trashed. This seems to be a regular thing, and the vandals responsible deserve to spend some time in jail.
