Register to Attend the Virtual Public Hearing for the I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project Next Week

December 7, 2022

For more information, please contact Rose Gerber, 503-470-3127,

A virtual public hearing will be held on December 14, 2022 from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

The upcoming virtual public hearing for the I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project is one of many ways to submit a public comment on the project’s Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA). Learn about the project and review the recently released documents on the project website or through the online open house. Then join us on Wednesday, December 14, 2022, at the virtual public hearing from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for a chance to provide spoken comments on the document’s findings.

In an effort to promote equity and in line with the project values, we’re asking people who identify as Black and/or people with ties to the historic Albina neighborhood to speak first, after invited testimony and before other registrants. Registration to attend and/or speak at the virtual public hearing closes on Monday, December 12, 2022, at 5 p.m.

The SEA was published on November 15, 2022, starting a 50-day comment period. The document updates the information presented in the 2019 EA and the 2020 Revised EA based on changes to the design of the highway cover. The SEA describes why the project is proposed; what changes have been made to the design (notably, the Proposed Hybrid 3 Cover Concept); and how the project would benefit and impact the social, economic and physical environments.

Public comments will continue to be accepted by email, mail, phone or through the form on the project website and online open house until midnight on January 4, 2023. Once the comment period is closed, all comments received during the public comment period will be available for viewing on the project website.
