Sullivan's Gulch is a project trail still in the early stages of development. Envisioned is a 4.3 to 5 mile long east-west corridor, connecting Portland to its outlying neighborhoods. The plans currently call for a rail-with-trail that will follow alongside local MAX light rail tracks, I-84 and an active freight line, from I-285 to the Willamette River. Running uninterrupted, this path could easily serve as direct access to downtown Portland as well as access to many rapid mass transit options.
Currently, a series of feasibility studies are being conducted to better assess the master plan and the funding necessary for its completion. It is expected that the studies will take roughly a year. According to initial projections for the Sullivan Gulch trail, construction is expected to begin in 2015.
