An update on Portland politics, plus Rose Quarter project hits potential uncertainty

The summer doldrums are here and fall is just around the corner – but some things don’t seem to change – Portland City Hall is filled with uncertainty and the mega project to expand I-5 through the rose quarter is once again filled with question marks.

On the latest episode of Beat Check with The Oregonian, we’ll tackle both of those ongoing stories.


On the first half of the show, City Hall reporter Shane Dixon Kavanaugh breaks down the latest in Portland politics – and we didn’t even hit on the police vaccine saga.


On the second half of the show, transportation reporter Jayati Ramakrishnan talks about the latest on the $1 billion-plus Rose Quarter freeway project.
