Transportation committee kicks off nine-city tour in Salem — tonight!

Posted By Beth Farmer, Wednesday, May 25, 2016

The Oregon Legislature's Joint Committee on Transportation Preservation and Modernization announced the schedule for a series of nine meetings to discuss state and local transportation needs with community leaders and the public across the state. The committee will hold its first meeting at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, May 25 at the Oregon State Capitol (900 Court St. NE, Salem).

The OAN encourages members to attend these meetings and make their voices heard. "Getting product to market is critical," OAN Executive Director Jeff Stone said. "Unfortunately, the state's outdated transportation infrastructure is hindering that process."

"Oregon's highways, bridges, ports, and rail connections need repair and modernization," committee co-chair Rep. Caddy McKeown (D-Coos Bay) said. "These meetings will give our committee members an opportunity to listen to Oregonians from across the state identify local transportation needs, and to build support for a comprehensive plan that will keep our economy moving and build a brighter future for Oregon."
