Wind Power Coming to Tilikum Crossing

You’ll soon see something new on TriMet’s Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People.

TriMet is installing 12 small wind turbines on top of poles on the bridge.

The turbines will sit near the outer edge of the multi-use pathways on both sides and either end of the bridge.

They will be placed atop existing poles that are about 30 feet tall and hold up the overhead wire, which powers MAX trains.

The installation will begin Monday night, March 25, and take about one month to complete.

While trains, buses and streetcars will not be disrupted during installation, the pathways will be temporarily affected for four nights.
