The controversial plan to expand Interstate 5 in Portland’s Rose Quarter has lost the support of the Albina Vision Trust. The Black-led community group sent an email to Oregon Department of Transportation officials June 30 saying that after engaging with the project for over two years, “we do not see our engagement resulting in meaningful changes to the project or its anticipated outcomes.” The group had hoped to see the scope of the project expand to include revitalization of the once-thriving Albina community, which was torn apart by the original construction of I-5 in the 1960s. We hear from Albina Vision Trust board members Mike Alexander and Zari Santner.
