There are many voices in our community and numerous considerations to take into account. Community-wide participation is vital so that our solution reflects our shared values and serves the needs of us all.

The project includes many public involvement opportunities to ensure that the final outcome is informed by the needs and issues important to the public. 

Current and Upcoming Events: 

Help us plan the first earthquake ready bridge in downtown Portland. In late 2020 and early 2021, we asked for your thoughts on the recommended Preferred Alternative. After further cost, environmental and permitting analysis, and input from stakeholders, the project team identified three key refinements to the Preferred Alternative for the community to consider. Participate in one of the upcoming events to learn more and share input.

Online Open House and Survey: Nov. 16 to Dec. 14 Learn about cost saving refinements to the Preferred Alternative and share your feedback through the online survey.

Live Webinar: Wednesday, December 1 at 5 p.m. – Join project team members online to learn more and ask questions.
