2010 - Union Street Railroad Bridge Project wins Oregon Heritage Excellence Award 2010 - Union Street Railroad Bridge Project Oregon Heritage Excellence Award
Individuals, organizations and projects that have made outstanding contributions to preserving Oregon heritage received 2010 Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards in April.  Oregon First Lady Mary Oberst  helped present the awards during an Oregon Heritage Regional Roundup April 9 in Oregon City.  Oregon Heritage Commission coordinator Kyle Jansson said the award recipients are considered model individuals, projects and organizations. They were judged on their abilities to produce the most from available resources and skills.

The Union Street Railroad Bridge Project, which preserved a 1912 bridge over the Willamette River at Salem and converted the span to the transportation of bicycles and pedestrians, was one of the five award winners.

The Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards are a project of the Heritage Programs Division of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, which includes the Oregon Heritage Commission. Commission chair George Kramer says the awards are intended to draw public attention to important heritage efforts in Oregon and to raise the quality of heritage-oriented activities.

Tickets for the awards dinner are found at: Oregon Heritage Regional Roundup's registration.
