Why are we holding an online and an in-person public open house?

Public engagement is an important part of this study.  Therefore, ODOT will share information about this study and receive public feedback both in-person and online. This approach will allow us to continue the important responsibility of engaging with the public about transportation projects.  The public is welcome to participate in one or both of these outreach events.
