Noise Variance Hearing – June 14th (LOCATION CHANGE)

ODOT is requesting a nighttime noise variance permit from the City of Portland (Title 18). Working at night is necessary to keep daytime traffic flowing on the heavily traveled freeway. As part of the permit process, ODOT will present the noise variance application to the Noise Review Board on Wednesday, June 14, in order to gain approval. This meeting is open to the public. If you have noise related concerns or feedback about this project and want them to be taken into consideration by the Noise Review Board, you can:

  • Email testimony to Dee Hidalgo, ODOT Community Affairs Coordinator, prior to June 14 at Dee.Hidalgo@odot.state.or.us.
  • Attend the City of Portland Noise Review Board meeting at 6 p.m. on June 14, 2017,
    Location (Updated): Portland Building (1120 SW 5th Ave) in Room B, 2ND Floor

Innovation spotlight: Regional stormwater treatment facility

A stormwater treatment facility like this will be built along I-205 near the airport.

ODOT treats all stormwater that runs off construction sites and facilities such as roads. In the past, dedicated stormwater treatment was constructed for each project. For this project, the capacity of an existing facility will be expanded and will be retrofitted to use best practices in water quality treatment. The design will reduce maintenance costs and allow enough capacity to treat water from several projects by creating a regional stormwater treatment facility. The cost-efficient and environmentally friendly facility will be a model for ODOT projects in the future.
