Votes set on Burnside Bridge seismic work
Multnomah County commissioners will vote on two issues connected to the project to make the Burnside Bridge's seismic improvements.
Commissioners vote Thursday, Nov. 14, on a range of alternatives and evaluation criteria for a study leading to a preferred alternative recommendation in 2020, and to decide how funds will be raised to pay for the project.
Board members meet at 9:30 a.m. in the first-floor boardroom at 501 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.
The project is expected to improve the Burnside Street to withstand a major earthquake. The project is estimated to cost between $550 million and $850 million.
