Bonamici Statement on Federal Record of Decision for Newberg Dundee Bypass

June 8, 2012
Press Release

Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (OR-1) issued the following statement in response to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)’s record of decision approving final design and construction of the long-awaited Newberg Dundee Bypass:

The Newberg Dundee Bypass is a crucial part of Yamhill County’s future economic success. Residents and visitors currently suffer from unacceptable levels of traffic congestion that compromise safety and air quality while discouraging new businesses. The record of decision issued by the Federal Highway Administration, which represents final federal approval for this important project, was the last hurdle prior to beginning construction. With nearly all of the funding for the project already secured, it is time to break ground and begin putting as many as 3500 Oregonians back to work in construction-related jobs.”
