On Thursday, May
2 at 4:15 p.m., the Metro Council will hold a public hearing on proposed
amendments to the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The hearing will occur during the Metro
Council meeting in the Council chamber at Metro Regional Center, 600 NE Grand
The Metro Council will
vote on the amendments at the Council meeting on May 16.
The RTP is updated every four years, as required by federal
law. In between full updates to the RTP, it may be necessary to amend the plan
in response to changing local conditions and newly adopted plans. To be
eligible to build a project with federal funds the project must first be
amended into the RTP.
Proposed changes to the RTP project list include projects in
Washington County, Hillsboro, Beaverton, Portland, East Multnomah County and
Oregon Department of Transportation projects along Interstate
205. Comments will also be received on analysis of how these changes
may affect regional air quality.
