Our Advocacy

Since August 2017, No More Freeways has been closely following local, regional and statewide conversations pertaining to the proposed Rose Quarter Freeway Expansion and ODOT’s other climate-destroying freeway expansion projects proposed across the Portland metro region.

We’ve been actively submitting public comments, signed by thousands of community members, as these proposals are being deliberated by different levels of government.  Below includes a handful of our letters to convince local, regional and statewide elected officials, appointed officials, and governing agencies to join us in opposing ODOT’s freeway expansions and instead demand that Oregon invest scarce resources in transit investments for public health, climate justice, traffic mitigation and equity initiatives.
