(Portland, OR) -- It's now safer for pedestrians and cyclists to cross from Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway to Capitol Highway. The new Red Electric Bridge has opened. The trail through Southwest Portland connects the Fanno Creek trail to the Willamette Greenway. It follows the former Red Electric train line that was in operation from 1914 through 1929. When the trail is finished, it'll run 16 miles from the Tualatin River to the Willamette River.
