The Columbia River Crossing task force will not meet in May, in fact their June meeting is the only one currently scheduled (what will they be doing all fall?). Here’s the update from the project staff:
The Columbia River Crossing Task Force will hold its next meeting on June 26 in Portland to receive a report on the details of alternatives that will be analyzed in 2007. THERE WILL BE NO TASK FORCE MEETING IN MAY.
The CRC project team is working to refine the details of the river crossing and transit alternatives that will be analyzed as part of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). Results of the analyses will be available for public comment. A formal public comment period is expected in the spring of 2008 to help identify the alternative that best addresses the defined problems in the project area.
The Task Force will meet at the Oregon Department of Transportation, 123 NW Flanders Street, Portland, 4:00–6:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend and will have an opportunity to provide testimony. All CRC meeting locations are accessible to people with disabilities. Accommodations for people with disabilities can be arranged with advance notice by calling the project office at 360-737-2726 or 503-256-2726.
