Update on the Earthquake Ready Burnside Bridge (EQRB) Project (6:25-7:25)
EQRB project staff will provide an update on the County’s effort to reduce the overall project cost and seek feedback from the committee members. Project staff will review a proposal to narrow the width of the bridge, as well as the range of ADA accessible connections evaluated at the west end of the bridge, and at the east end of the bridge connecting to the Eastbank Esplanade.
Update on Hollywood HUB project (7:25-7:30)
BAC member Iain MacKenzie will provide a brief update on TriMet’s Hollywood HUB project. The project will be going to Design Commission for a Design Advice Request on December 16th. The design, of interest to both the BAC and PAC, elicited comments to TriMet in the form of a BAC letter following TriMet’s appearance before the BAC in June 2021.
82nd Avenue Jurisdictional Transfer Process (7:30-8:20)
Last summer, the State Legislature directed $80M in American Recovery Act Plan funding to the City of Portland to make critical safety and maintenance improvements to 82nd Avenue and triggering a transfer of the roadway from the state to the city. City Council is expected to review the jurisdictional transfer agreement that includes additional financial commitments from the City and State in early 2022. PBOT Planning Division Manager Kristin Hull and PBOT Senior Planner Julia Reed will discuss the jurisdictional transfer, timeline and public process. She will look for committee advice on how to best engage historically under-represented groups. For background, see existing transportation plans for 82nd Avenue: 82nd Avenue Plan: Planning for a Future Civic Corridor (PBOT), and 82nd Avenue Implementation Plan (ODOT).
Public Comment II (8:20-8:30)
