Supreme fabricated and installed the Wildwood Trail Bridge (also known as the Barbara Walker Crossing Trail Bridge) with extensive pre-planning and coordination. This resulted in a successful execution of the 177 foot, 24-ton bridge, with limited road closures on Burnside in NW Portland. The three sections were delivered separately to site on a 70’ trailer with each taking over 8 hours of travel time from Supreme’s Portland fabrication shop.


Portland’s Wildwood Trail footbridge recently won two 2020 CodaAwards: first place in the transportation category, and was one of three projects that won a People’s Choice Award!

The Washington Park bridge is considered one of the longest urban hiking trails in the USA.
