Coming Soon: Freeway/Local Transportation Interface Charrette

If Portlanders have experienced traffic in the city, it's quite likely around the Rose Quarter -- either on I-5 or on the many serpentine streets surrounding the interchange at the coliseum. Now the City of Portland and the Oregon Department of Transportation are tackling the transportation issues there during a three-day charrette (or workshop).

Come learn about the underlying issues and be a part of the solution.

The charrette will be held April 11 - 13 and will start the process of developing preliminary concepts for improvements to the I-5 freeway corridor within the planning area. It will also look at how the freeway interfaces with the local transportation system, including ramp and bridge design and impacts on the circulation system. All members of the public are invited to attend and participate in the charrette at three different sessions:

  • April 11, 5-8:30 pm, Opening session

  • April 12, noon to 1 pm, Check-in session to review preliminary work

  • April 13, 5-7 pm, Closing session to review and discuss charrette products

See the calendar for locations. More information about each session is also available in the charrette agenda.
