Neighborhood Forums

In May and June, IBR hosted in-person community events in Portland and Vancouver, as an opportunity for the public to meet with program staff, including technical experts across a variety of disciplines, as well as leadership. 

Attendees were able to ask detailed questions about timeline, impacts, right of way, cost, tolling, and more, and they also provided critical input on what needs to happen and how to continue with strong community engagement.

Community Advisory Group Highlights

  • In April, The Community Advisory Group (CAG) discussed cost estimates and anticipated sources of revenue to fund the program, including tolling. They also learned about the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS), including the review process, various design configurations being analyzed, and the anticipated timeframe for public comment period.
  • In May they heard updates on funding and grants and Section 106. The program talked about the history of discriminatory practice and inequality experienced by communities in the IBR corridor. The team discussed their goals of learning from and repairing past harms from transportation projects. The members heard from Co-Chair Ed Washington about his lived experience with the City of Vanport and the injustices that came with the Vanport floods. The group discussed equity in design, and examples of accessible and inclusive design. 
  • In June program updates included a recap of the neighborhood forums and updates on the federal grant process. The design team reviewed the conceptual bridge visualizations and aerial maps showing the proposed investments. The group also received an overview of the bridge design process, including the principles, goals, and desired outcomes for the IBR program.

Equity Advisory Group Highlights

  • In April, The Equity Advisory Group (EAG) welcomed a new member and heard from the program administrator about legislative updates. The group learned about cost estimates in the financial plan and discussed Section 106 of the National Environmental Protection Act. 
  • In May they met and discussed the history of discriminatory practice from transportation projects, process equity, and equitable outcomes through design. Topics included safety, accessibility, travel times, placemaking, public facilities, transit needs, and inequality experienced by communities in the IBR corridor. The team introduced a discussion of Transit Oriented Communities and other design principles, and how we can use the transit network to build communities. Lastly, the group heard about upcoming fairs and festivals.
  • In June they reviewed the conceptual bridge visualizations and aerial maps showing the proposed investments in the program area. The group received an overview of the bridge design process, including the principles, goals, and desired outcomes. Discussion included equity considerations in the design process and the importance of considering the potential impact on homes and businesses.

Equity Roundtable Event: The Intersection of Multimodal Transportation and Equity

In June, a panel representing perspectives ranging from “supercommuters” to regional transit came together to hold important discussions about equity as it relates to multimodal transportation. The panelists answered questions related to equity benefits of the program, what equity looks like through different modes, and how we can measure equitable outcomes.

“We think we have great ideas of how we can position this bridge to be…future ready. We will be judged by those future generations – did we do the right thing? Did we make smart decisions” - Greg Johnson

What we've heard and how we're responding

We've heard concerns about freeway widening.

There has been continued interest in a tunnel or third bridge option.
