T2 Mass Timber Innovation Campus

Seismic improvements NEPA Public Notice

Notice is hereby given by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) that a grant application is being made for funding from the Port of Portland to construct T2 Mass Timber Innovation Campus-Seismic Improvements in Portland, Oregon (Multnomah County).  

The project will construct seismic improvements to facilitate future development of a proposed Mass Timber Innovation Campus at Terminal 2 (T2). The proposed soil stabilization method for the seismic improvements employs a deep soil mixing buttress, which is an in-situ soil treatment blending native soils with binding materials such as cement to strengthen the soils. Soil mixing is accomplished with vertical drilling and mixing augers which simultaneously drill, mix, and pump cement slurry into the soil.

The project will be located at 3556 NW Front Avenue Portland, Oregon 97210.  Project information is available for review at https://portofportland.com/environment  Questions can be directed to Port of Portland 7200 NE Airport Way Portland, OR 97218, Attn: Tom Bouillion (503) 484-8868.

Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, EDA is conducting an environmental assessment (EA) of the proposed project.  
Additionally, a determination has been made by the EDA (in accordance with the President’s Executive Order 11988) that the project will be located in the 100-year floodplain and that there is no practicable alternative. The project has been designed to minimize the risk of loss of life and property damage due to flood and storm damage and will have no adverse impacts to floodplain value and function. 

If you have any information regarding potential environmental impacts associated with this proposed project, please provide it in writing to:

EDA Regional Environmental Officer
Subject Line: T2 Mass Timber Innovation Campus-Seismic Improvements
SRO-REO@eda.gov or call 206-833-6035

Comments will be accepted by the EDA until 8/12/22.  If no adverse comments are received, this will be the only notice.
