Who paid for the Barbara Walker Crossing?

The Barbara Walker Crossing is Portland’s—and maybe the world’s—first crowd-funded bridge.

Sixty-three percent of the bridge’s $4-million budget came from more than 900 donations from individuals, businesses, organizations, and foundations, plus pro bono hours contributed by the design/construction team.

In the largest project in its 18-year history,  Portland Parks Foundation served as the bridge’s “developer” in partnership with Portland Parks & Recreation, Portland Bureau of Transportation, and Metro.





Here’s what it cost and who paid for it:


PRIVATE
$2.17 million from 900 individual donations
$385,000 in pro bono services from the design/construction team

$2,665,000

PUBLIC
$500,000 from Portland’s general fund
$350,000 PBOT SDCs
$450,000 PP&R SDCs
$200,000 from Metro’s Open Spaces Bond

$1,500,000

TOTAL
$4,155,000
