[photos] Tri-Met discovers Stargate during Milwaukie light rail expansion

I have no idea what the heck this is, but it’s in the middle of the Tri-Met light rail expansion construction at the north end of Milwaukie, OR. Note the scale with the front end loader — that sucker must be something like 30 feet in diameter. The theory that Lisa Costello and I have evolved is that it’s a Stargate. Or possibly it’s some form of public art, but the project site is early days for an art installation.

It’s here, though the Google Maps aerial view isn’t current to the construction process.

    Your second guess was right…it is part of the public art for the project…there will be a second one also, meant to represent the sawmills that were so crucial to the development of this area. But I like the Stargate idea!
