Lately, the Powell/Division project has been getting much of the press, with significant public outreach in advance of next week’s Steering Committee meeting. But the Southwest Corridor project–a project that is on a far longer timetable–has been making some advances as well. This past week, three new documents were published by the project team:
- A brief overview of the different tunneling options
- Detailed descriptions of the different alignments in both the Downtown-OHSU and Hillsdale segments.
While there are many details to be worked out, one of the key sets of decisions to be made–and this may not be made for a while, as the DEIS process may include multiple options for analysis–are the mode (BRT or light rail) and the various tunneling options.
More after the jump.
