Such action would interfere with the safe, efficient and normal operation of trains. Portland & Western Railroad has specifically requested and authorized the Lake Oswego Police Department to act as their agent to remove and/or arrest persons trespassing on property belonging to the Portland & Western Railroad. ORS 165.255(c) makes entering or remaining unlawfully upon railroad yards, tracks, bridges or rights of way a Class A Misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $7,500 and up to one year in jail. There is no viewing of fireworks from the railroad tracks. Please stay off the railroad tracks.
It is our sincere hope that you enjoy the many festivities the city has to offer on this holiday. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
