Jack Mulder, talks about The Salmonberry Trail planning and contstruction work being completed in Tillamook County along the Coastal Segment of the Salmonberry Trail and the Port of Tillamook Bay Railroad. Mulder is a Commissioner with the Port of Tillamook Bay and the Port’s representative to the Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency (STIA)
Jack was filmed on Hoquarten Slough in downtown Tillamook and you can hear construction noise coming from a nearby $38.2-million transportation revitalization project. When this project finishes next year, Tillamook will have two new bridges, wider streets, pedestrian paths, and the first segment of the ambitious Salmonberry Trail.
Even though we’re still several years away from major trail construction, there’s plenty of work to do to get ready: trail segment planning, engineering assessments, hazardous material surveys, public involvement, marketing plans, economic and health benefit studies, permitting, and what feels like a million other things to think about and prepare for.
