NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TYPE 6 LIGHT RAIL VEHICLE PROCUREMENT REQUEST FOR FINDING OF EQUIVALENT FACILITATION LOW FLOOR LIGHT RAIL VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH BRIDGE PLATES

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TYPE 6 LIGHT RAIL VEHICLE PROCUREMENT REQUEST FOR FINDING OF EQUIVALENT FACILITATION LOW FLOOR LIGHT RAIL VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH BRIDGE PLATES Notice is hereby given that the Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet) will hold a public hearing regarding its intent to request a finding of equivalent facilitation for the bridge plates of its new low floor light rail vehicles. The public hearing will be held at the following time and location: January 9, 2019 Noon-1:30 p.m. TriMet Transit Mobility Center 515 NW Davis Street, Portland, OR 97209 Conference Room TriMet is taking public comments in accordance with 49 CFR 37.7 regarding its intent to request a finding of equivalent facilitation (an alternative design or technology which provides substantially equivalent or greater access) for an alternate method of compliance with 49 CFR 38.83(c)(4), which requires each side of a light rail vehicle bridge late to have barriers at least two inches high. In 1994 and 2011, the Federal Transit Administration issued a finding of equivalent facilitation allowing all bridge plates on TriMet light rail vehicles to be designed and constructed without side barriers. TriMet intends to request that it be allowed to continue constructing bridge plates without side barriers. Any interested party may appear at the hearing and present public comments on this issue. To request interpretative or translation services please contact TriMet at: 503.962.2150 or TTY at: 7-1-1, at least 48 hours in advance of the hearing. A link to the draft document is available at: www.trimet.org/meetings Hard copies of the draft document will be made available at the hearing. Publish Jan. 1, 3, 2019. PT84283
