The Interstate Bridge Replacement (IBR) is in the process of forming Community Working Groups for the I-5 bridge between OR and WA. They are seeking individuals who have unique or specialized familiarity, experience or expertise in one of four areas of special interest:
Active Transportation will advise and provide feedback on bridge type and configuration, connections, and design of walking/biking/rolling facility on bridge.
Downtown Vancouver will advise and provide feedback on Downtown Vancouver highway and transit connections, options and design.
Hayden Island/Marine Drive will advise and provide feedback on Hayden Island/Marine Drive interchanges and highway and transit connections, options and design.
Multimodal Commuter will advise and provide feedback on Interterstate Bridge user experience from a commuter perspective, including access to transit and other modes of transportation (i.e. auto, bike, rolling, etc).
Community Work Groups will range in size from 15-20 individuals, about half community-at-large, half stakeholder representatives. A professional facilitator will guide the work and meetings will last two to three hours.
An orientation is tentatively scheduled for the end of August with two to three meetings to be scheduled September-November. Community-at-large participants will receive a $35 gift card for each session attended.
