Land & Timber Co. L.L.C.'s rail intermodal consolidation facility; BNSF Railway Co.'s Portland intermodal facility improvements; and Portland & Western Railroad's capital city rail work.The OTC will hold a public hearing on the recommendations July 17 in Salem, then make a final decision on chosen projects at its Aug. 21-22 meeting.
The ConnectOregon program was approved by the Oregon legislature in 2005 and since has funded more than 140 multi-modal projects around the state.
