Post No. 7 of a series

 

I wrote the Project Manager on the SECOND bridge, laying out my vision and asking to be included on decision making, etc. I copied Director Brown, who himself wrote Mr. Wise, the second bridge's project manager.

Ms. Hinkle-

Thank you for contacting me regarding your requested enhancements to the roadway adjacent to your property and neighborhood. ODOT continually values input from all stake holders. While your request is not out of the question, I do not want to make any promises at this time. ODOT just authorized Richland Engineering Limited June 1, 2011 to prepare plans for the new eastbound Innerbelt bridge as well as demolition plans for the existing Innerbelt bridge. At this time, we are still ramping up to begin detailed design.

Throughout the project development process, we will be holding public meetings with focus groups and block clubs, similar to those held for the westbound design build project currently under construction. This will be the prime opportunity for you to express your concerns and requests to myself and other stake holders. Of course, I welcome input at any time, in any format. When we begin to detail the enhancement portions of the plans, we will keep your request in mind and do our best to include your input.

Please contact me with any concerns and I will be happy to help you.

Thank you,

Jason Wise, P.E.
