OPEN HOUSE SET FOR FERN VALLEY INTERCHANGE PROJECT
 
PHOENIX —The Oregon Department of Transportation will host an open house on Tuesday, March 30 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the City of Phoenix City Council Chambers, 510 First Street, to discuss the process involved in creating a transportation solution that addresses the long-term traffic and development needs of the Interstate 5 interchange at Phoenix.
 
ODOT is seeking information and ideas from the public. There will be no formal presentation, so the public may drop in at their convenience.
 
Information available at the open house includes:
  • Fern Valley Interchange Unit 2 project purpose and background;
  • The environmental planning process;
  • Opportunities for community participation;
  • Technical information and environmental issues.
 
The Fern Valley Interchange Unit 1 Project was completed in 2003. The safety project moved Luman and North Phoenix roads away from the I-5 interchange ramps. Signals were added to the I-5 off-ramps, Pear Tree Lane became a cul-de-sac and the interchange area gained a sidewalk.
While the Unit 1 project was intended as a short-term traffic solution, the current study will seek an interchange solution for a 20-year planning horizon.

Accommodations will be provided to persons with disabilities. Alternate formats are available upon request. If a sign language interpreter is needed, please call ODOT Public Information Specialist Gary Leaming (541-774-6388) at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.
