Interstate bridge replacement

                                HINooN Request for Resident’s Preference
                          Your vote needed by Tuesday, October 19th at Noon                  Interstate Bridge Replacement Community Working Group
                                           Hayden Island Neighborhood SURVEY
On September 27, 2021 the Interstate Replacement Bridge Working Committee asked the Hayden Island
representative to go back to the community and ask which of 3 interchange options they would prefer for
Hayden Island. We have prepared a  short google survey.  The link to the survey is attached to the bottom
of this memo.

The survey question asks which of the following Interstate Interchanges you would prefer and feel free
to write your questions and concerns in the comment section. We have asked for your email address on
the survey in order to get back in touch with you.

                                                                          Here are the choices:
                                                                          1. No Interchange
                                                                          2. Full Interchange
                                                                          3. Half Interchange
We realize that there is a lack of available information at this time. However, we ask for your patience
and understanding and do your best to answer the question.  We will be requesting traffic studies to
point out congestion pinch points for the various options for the Marine drive interchanges and local
Hayden Island streets. 

All three options include at least one local access bridge to and from Hayden Island connecting to either
Marine Drive, Expo Rd. or the Vancouver Way area.   The Interstate Replacement Bridge Project
Committee has not clearly indicated the number of Freeway lanes.

If you are looking for even more information, the 2017 Washington State Report found at the
following link has more information on the bridge and the various possible scenarios
Columbia River I-5 Bridge Planning Inventory Report (wa.gov).

Please Pick from one of these three choices:

A1.  Local Access option
The following information shows potential options for Local Access All access would be provided by Marine drive ramps to and from Hayden Island.  If you want to go to Hayden Island you would have to go VIA Marine Drive and across the local access bridge to get to Hayden Island.

A2.  Full Interchange Option All access to Hayden Island would be via North and South Interchanges located on Hayden Island.  Local access connections to Expo Rd. and Vancouver Way will also be included.  Traffic circulation would be on Hayden Island North and Jantzen Drive South.   
  A3.  Half Interchange options This option would provide ramps to(North) and from (South) Vancouver, WA to Hayden Island only.   Access to Portland would be via an access road across the North Harbor likely connecting to a proposed Marine Drive interchange (Yet to be determined).    This option drastically reduces the footprint/land area and impact on Hayden according to the engineers.

Recent News Plan to Strengthen the Portland Metro Levee System Approved For the last three years, we have been working with the US Army Corps of Engineers to complete a congressionally authorized feasibility study of the local flood safety infrastructure.  The final study, which includes the Corps’ recommendations to make the system more reliable and resilient for the next fifty years and beyond, was recently approved by the Chief of Engineers, marking a major milestone in our efforts to secure federal funding for levee improvements.  Next, the study will go through additional review to determine if it will go to Congress for authorization and funding. If approved, the recommended improvements will: Address points of weakness that could result in levee breaches or overtoppingReduce the risk of internal floodingBuild a levee next to the railroad embankment that breached in 1948 leading to the destruction of the City of Vanport and displacement of more than 18,500 people Click here to learn more about the study. Life Along the Columbia: Stories from Behind the Levee   With the start of the rainy season comes an increased risk of flooding within the drainage districts.  As MCDD staff prepare for the flood season, now is a good time to prepare yourself as well by making a plan, building a supply kit, and staying informed This Fall, we are building awareness around flood risk in the area by showcasing a collection of stories called Life Along the Columbia.  These stories are told by a diverse group of individuals who live, work, or recreate within the levee system. From October 4th to November 22nd, you can follow a new story each week on our social media platforms to learn more about how these individuals relate to the floodplain, and reflect on your own relationship to the area. Interact with these posts on social media (see links below) and be entered to win a free emergency kit!

Virtual meeting


Cleaner Air Oregon Review: Focus on 4 N/NE Facilities

On 10/26/21, Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods and North Portland Neighborhood
Services will host a public meeting to address the concerns about air toxics and health risk
from four North and Northeast Portland Industrial Facilities. These industrial sites are
currently in evaluation by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) through
the Cleaner Air Oregon Program. Clustered along the North edge of Portland, along the
Columbia River, the sites are located in three neighborhoods: Cully, Kenton, and St. Johns.
Cleaner Air Oregon is a DEQ program that regulates emissions from industrial and
commercial facilities based on health risks to surrounding communities. There are four
facilities in North and Northeast Portland in various stages of the Cleaner Air Oregon
permitting process. DEQ will present information about the Cleaner Air Oregon program,
provide details on each facility, and describe how community members can be involved.
DEQ staff will compare the 4 facilities and share reports on new air toxics and health risk
data, updated CAO time frames, and identify opportunities to engage in the process.
The Facilities
Owens Brockway: 9710 NE Glass Plant Rd, 97220
Hydro-Extrusions North America: 5325 NE Skyport Way, 97218
Ecolube Recovery: 11535 N Force Avenue, 97217

Local Air Quality advocacy groups will also offer opportunities to engage on air quality
issues specific to these sites and in the wider metropolitan area as well. NECN and NPNS
welcome the public to participate in this Land Use and Transportation meeting as well as
future meetings – these meetings address a wide range of issues that impact livability –
your input is valued! Live Q & A! All written submitted questions will be addressed during
