What is the Executive Steering Committee’s role in the project?

ODOT established an Executive Steering Committee in spring 2020 to advise the Oregon Transportation Commission and ODOT on major project decisions. The Executive Steering Committee shapes principles and values to guide the project, design elements such as the highway covers, inclusive public engagement, project financing and delivery, and other project considerations. Oregon Transportation Commission Vice Chair Alando Simpson chairs the Executive Steering Committee, which is facilitated by Dr. Steven Holt.
