ODOT Priorities Public Meeting
February 22, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Public meetings will hear comment on Oregon’s 2018-21 statewide transportation priorities
ODOT has scheduled two public meetings in February to hear public comment on the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, which is the department’s project to-do list.
The latest draft of the STIP, as it’s known, will spell out priorities for 2018-21 for all forms of transportation, including highway, rail, freight, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian.
The meetings are scheduled for:
Wednesday Feb. 22 from, 5:30-7:30 p.m., at ODOT Region 1 Headquarters, 123 N.W. Flanders St., Portland, 97209.
Thursday Feb. 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Multnomah County Library’s Gresham branch, 385 N.W. Miller Ave., Gresham, 97030.
The draft STIP includes many projects in the Portland metro area’s four counties, with 70 in Multnomah, 44 in Washington, 43 in Clackamas and 13 in Hood River counties.
These projects represent ODOT’s plans for design and construction and are dependent on the availability of funding as anticipated. These public meetings mark the final stages of the 2018-21 STIP process. This will be a chance to weigh on the final list of projects, which has been narrowed down from a longer list.
This public comment period for this phase of the process closes Feb. 28 but comments are always welcome.
All comments will be compiled and placed into a report. Public comments help identify unexpected problems with the 2018-21 list and help identify ideas for future projects.
The Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration approve the STIP and all changes made to it.
