Environmental Evaluation Process

This fall, the IBR program begins environmental evaluation of the Modified Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) as required by federal law. This work will study the benefits and impacts of foundational design details.

Examples of design elements to be studied during this time include, but are not limited to:

  • One auxiliary lane from Marine Drive in Portland to Mill Plain Blvd in Vancouver.
  • Partial I-5 interchange on Hayden Island.
  • Extension of light rail transit from the Expo Center in Portland to Vancouver with a terminus at Evergreen. Blvd to connect the existing transit networks.
  • Potential transit station locations on Hayden Island, near the Vancouver waterfront, and Evergreen Blvd near the Vancouver Community Library.
  • Potential transit park and ride locations.
  • Active transportation (bike/walk/roll) connections.

During the summer of 2023, a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS) will be published for public review and comment. This document will summarize environmental review findings and the impacts and benefits associated with the Modified LPA.

Community Advisory Group Highlights

  • CAG members shared their experience participating in a program area bus tour, reviewed and discussed the U.S. Coast Guard preliminary navigation clearance determination, and learned about summer community engagement activities.
  • The IBR environmental team reviewed information about next steps in the NEPA process that will inform the forthcoming Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement. CAG members asked questions about what has changed and what has remained the same about this phase of the environmental review process since the previous EIS.
  • The IBR community engagement team reviewed key themes and comments heard at events hosted in Oregon and Washington during the Summer 2022 Fairs and Festivals engagement effort. CAG discussed the role they would like to have in future engagement activities, with several members expressing interest in attending or participating in future engagement events.


Equity Advisory Group Highlights

  • EAG members met with staff from the Oregon Department of Transportation Toll Program and learned about their approach for developing an equitable toll system that aims to reduce the burden of tolls on low-income drivers.
  • The group reviewed common elements of a Community Benefits Agreement (CBA), how the IBR Equity Framework will be incorporated into the process of developing a CBA for IBR, and next steps in the process.
  • EAG received a review of the next steps in the NEPA process leading up to the anticipated publication of the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement.

Reporting

Updated through May 2022. Contracting and expenditure data takes longer to receive and compile and may not be available until months after the reported timeframe. The program will continue to share accountability reports and develop additional reporting metrics. The most recent accountability reports includes the 2022 Legislative Progress Report and 2021 Community Engagement Reports. The 2020 Conceptual Finance Plan provides an early and high-level overview of initial estimated funding and financing needs and potential sources.

Current reports are listed to the right. For more information, visit our library.
