RiverPlace Planned Community meeting

Monday, July 25, 6–8 p.m.

Portland’s water mains that cross the Willamette River are more than 50 years old and will probably not survive a major earthquake. The Willamette River Crossing Project, which will build an earthquake-resilient water line under the Willamette River, is part of the Water Bureau’s investment in preparedness. The improvements we’re making will enhance our water system’s resilience and reduce future risks, ensuring safe and abundant water for generations to come.

If you want to learn why we’re building this complicated infrastructure and what to expect while we’re doing it, then please join us! We welcome your questions and concerns so we can address them as we fine-tune our plans.

The project team will share what we heard from the community during outreach and more details about expected construction impacts at and near RiverPlace. The contractor will present their draft plan for reducing those impacts.

Registration is required. We’ll share a link and background materials soon on the project website.
