A new report that identifies the 50 worst chokepoints on Oregon’s roads, bridges and transit systems will be released in Portland at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 13.
TRIP will release a report titled, “Oregon’s Transportation Chokepoints: The Top 50 Chokepoints and Remedies for Relief.” It pinpoints the 50 segments of Oregon’s road, highway and transit systems that impede routine travel, commuting or commerce, or place limits on economic development because of deficient design or inadequate capacity. These chokepoints are located throughout the state, with many of them in the Portland area. TRIP is a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC.
TRIP’s Frank Moretti will present the findings of the report and be available for questions and comments from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Reporters can attend in person at the Portland Business Alliance or call the number below to participate remotely.
