Help shape the future of Multnomah Countyâ€™s bridges
Community Bridge Summit,Â Thursday, March 20, 6 â€“ 8 p.m.
Conference Room 315 (3rd Floor), Multnomah Building, 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
Multnomah County has begun a major update of its 20-yearÂ Capital Improvement PlanÂ for its six Willamette River Bridges: the Broadway, Burnside, Hawthorne, Morrison, Sauvie Island and Sellwood.
A key part of this important planning effort is getting input from citizens and community stakeholders.Â We want to know which bridge improvements are most important to the public.Â This year we will develop a list of possible bridge improvements for public review.Â We also want to learn about projects that organizations are planning that could affect county bridges.
As part of our outreach we have scheduled this community bridge summit to:
- Brief you on the Bridges CIP plan, criteria for selecting projects, and schedule
- Learn about other stakeholder projects near county bridges
- Learn about your goals and priorities for improvements on the county bridges
- Explain how you can stay involved in this project
A benefit for attendees will be the opportunity to learn about projects that multiple groups have planned near the bridges in coming years.
The meeting location is served by TriMet bus routes 4, 6, 10 and 14, and Portland Streetcar.Â Street parking is available nearby. Â We’ll provide pizza at the meeting.
A project fact sheet is hereÂ Multnomah County CIP Fact Sheet (8)Â and the project website isÂ www.multco.us/bridgeplan.Â If you cannot attend, please consider taking a shortÂ online surveyÂ about the bridges beforeÂ April 4.
