Public Encouraged to Attend and Participate in the Project’s First Open House Meeting
The first public open house for the Industrial Way / Oregon Way Intersection Project has been scheduled for Thursday, September 17, 2015, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Cowlitz County PUD Auditorium, in Longview. The Industrial Way / Oregon Way Intersection Project is seeking to develop an affordable long-term roadway solution to improve travel reliability and safety, accommodate current and future commerce movement, and maintain or improve emergency response at this critical intersection.
A brief presentation will be given to provide participants with project history and information related to the project purpose and need, schedule, and next steps. Following the presentation, participants may visit various information stations to view and provide input on the initial design concepts being evaluated and what should be studied in the environmental analysis. Participants will be encouraged to provide feedback on written comment forms. The scoping period starts September 11, 2015 and comments will be accepted until October 12, 2015.
Additional information may be found on the Industrial Way / Oregon Way Intersection Project website at www.IndustrialOregonWay.org. The site includes a registration page to receive future project announcements and updates via email.
A second public open house is anticipated to take place in Winter 2016 to present refined design alternatives and gather input on the evaluation of the alternatives.
A Spanish language interpreter will be available at the open house.
