Questions? Check Out Our New Project Fact Sheets!
Did you know that more than 70 design concepts were considered before selecting the current project design? Have you heard what an Environmental Assessment is and what it analyzes? Are you wondering what actions ODOT has already taken to minimize air quality impacts from the project? Would you like to learn more about how sound walls would reduce existing and future traffic noise levels in the project area, including at Harriet Tubman Middle School and Lillis Albina Park?
There are a lot of topics at the top of mind for our community and we’ve developed several fact sheets to answer your questions. These fact sheets have also answered questions from and informed the work of the Historic Albina Advisory Board:
- Project History
- Environmental Assessment and Environmental Peer Review
- Air Quality
Rose Quarter Underground: Looking at Conditions from the Bottom Up
ODOT contractor crews are out in the project area to collect critical data to inform project design and construction. This work will cause temporary closures and detours for people walking, biking, rolling, and driving, but the activities will be no louder than typical traffic noise.
Three types of separate field work are scheduled to take place:
|Surveying||Locate and record data on street trees and other existing features in the project area||May – June 2021|
|Soil sampling||Soil sample collection in project area||May – June 2021|
|Hazardous materials sampling||Collection of paint and other materials samples in project area||May – June 2021|
