From the Columbia River Crossing Project:
PORTLAND – The Columbia River Crossing project and the Portland Working Group are hosting an open house Feb. 10 for the public to learn about improvements to Hayden Island, including the latest roadway and light rail designs; pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle access around the island; strategies for commercial and residential development around the transit station; and safety and security measures.
The Portland Working Group is composed of community members from Hayden Island and North Portland.
CRC and the Portland Working Group are working to ensure that CRC investments on Hayden Island will help realize the neighborhood vision in Hayden Island Plan, the City of Portland’s blueprint for planning and development on the island. Representatives from CRC, the Portland Working Group, City of Portland, Oregon Department of Transportation, and TriMet will be available at the open house to provide information and answer questions.
