Over the past year, the Oregon Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration, in partnership with the City of Portland, have been conducting an environmental study, also known as an Environmental Assessment, for the I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project. The Environmental Assessment is a thorough, easy-to-understand report of the benefits and impacts of the project.
The Environmental Assessment will now be released in February 2019. This new release date will allow the team to complete the evaluation and make it reader-friendly to more easily facilitate community input.
Once the study is published, the public can review and comment on the study findings during a 30-day comment period. With the revised publication date, community members have additional time to review the project website and materials to learn more prior to the release of the study.
