Train Trek, Gresham, OR

Thursday, 11 August 2022 1:00 pm

Join us for this Train Trek event in the Troutdale/Gresham area. Meet local stakeholders, gain valuable information, make the proper connections, and build the coalitions needed to realize visionary, large-scale, infrastructure projects.

Whether you're concerned about the environment, job creation or ease of travel there is a lot to consider when it comes to the expansion of rail in the Pacific NW. As discussion of ultra high speed rail going from Vancouver, BC to Portland, OR moves closer to a reality we have to look at what opportunities might that provide for the rest of Oregon. With a massive investment from the Federal Government into passenger rail outside of the Northeast Corridor there is some discussion of higher speed conventional rail that can feed into the ultra high speed system. Join us at 1pm on August 11 when Senator Gorsek participates in a panel on the Portland leg of All Aboard NW's Train Trek.
