I-5 Delta Park Project Environmental Assessment Imminent

This recently came in over the transom. We were happy to note that there is an option to get the report on CD to avoid consuming a tree to get the 400+ pages…

I-5: DELTA PARK (VICTORY BOULEVARD TO LOMBARD SECTION)
INTERSTATE 5
MULTNOMAH
KEY NO. 12076

The Environmental Assessment for the I-5 Delta Park (Victory Boulevard to Lombard Section) project will be completed and distributed soon.

What Is This?
This environmental assessment contains the descriptions, maps, tables, figures and analyses of four alternatives designed to relieve congestion on I-5 between Delta Park and Lombard Avenue. It also contains mitigation measures for impacts to the environment that would result if the project is built. The project’s citizen advisory committees have recommended two of the Alternatives: Alternative 2, Argyle on the Hill and Alternative 4, Columbia Connector.

Do You Want A Copy?
You can request a copy of the Environmental Assessment by going to the following website http://surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=252601444030 Your response is needed by November 11, 2005. The document will be mailed to you as soon as it is available. You’ll have a 45-day period for reviewing this document and sending your comments to Oregon Department of Transportation. When you receive the Environmental Assessment we will also notify you of when the comment period ends, when and where the public hearing will be held, and options for making comments electronically.

If you have further questions, please contact Kate Deane, the environmental project manager on this project, at 503-731-8245.

Note that the “environmental assessment” (sort of an environmental impact statement lite) is the last planning step before a federal funding agreement.
