Noise variance hearing May 9 for light rail construction

The City of Portland Noise Review Board will hold a public hearing Wednesday, May 9 at 6 p.m. regarding TriMet’s application for a construction noise variance for the project’s East Segment in southeast Portland, the portion between the Willamette River’s east bank and the Multnomah County line near S.E. Tacoma Street.

TriMet says normal construction hours are Monday–Saturday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The noise variance would allow night and/or Sunday work where the alignment crosses SE 8th, 11th and 12th avenues, Powell, Holgate and McLoughlin boulevards, Harold and Tacoma streets, and Crystal Springs Creek.

A public hearing will take place before the City of Portland’s Noise Review Board at the Bureau of Development Services Building, 1900 S.W. 4th Ave, Room 2500 B, Portland.

The Tacoma Street Station is located within the northwestern corner of Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood Association boundary in the Portland city limits.
