A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

On the river: Check that pile of debris

Written February 16th, 2022 by Hasso Hering

Every winter, or so it seems, logs and other debris drifting down the Willamette River pile up against a pier of the Albany railroad bridge. It looks like trouble, but at this point it worries neither the railroad nor the Oregon State Marine Board.

At first glance, from afar, it looked like trouble with the Portland & Western trestle on First Avenue, where for decades trucks have now and then become stuck. But in this case, on Monday morning, trouble had done everybody a favor and stayed away.

Ready for another fascinating report from the wilds of Albany’s riverside bike and walking trail, the Dave Clark Path? The path happens to be part of one of my favorite short cycling routes around town. So what about those cracks in one of the piers holding up the Portland & Western bridge across the Willamette River?
