Skidmore
Fountain
blue red
 
Skidmore Fountain is located along 1 Avenue on a section where the street is only open to LRVs. Most of the stop is nested in an underpass beneath Burnside Street and the entrance to the Burnside Bridge. The platforms are just on the sidewalk with some TVMs and signposts no other canopies (the location in an underpass provides enough covering) and there is a neon sign for the Portland Saturday Market along the Eastbound platform since it is located here. A staircase leads up to either side (one from each platform) of the Burnside Bridge. There is also a low single chain on posts separating the platforms.
