The Interstate Bridge Project has recommended moving forward into environmental review with a single “Tall Bridge” alternative. Our Alliance is committed to more sustainable and equitable outcomes from this project and believes it’s irresponsible to move forward with this single alternative.
We’re asking Metro Council and Portland City Council to slow the process down and require an additional alternative – a lift bridge or tunnel – to also be studied in environmental review for better outcomes:
- Gentler grades for freight and people walking, rolling and biking
- Insurance against the Coast Guard requiring clearances higher than 126 feet
- A project that can be split into phases that can be prioritized against other pressing regional needs
Please add your voice to our effort and send your message to Metro and Portland City Council.
