The Oregon Department of Transportation is readying a $500-million redo of I-5 in the Rose Quarter, building bridges and “lidding” portions of the freeway to reconnect the neighborhood. Albina Vision, a group of citizen activists, wants to honor the pre-highway history of Albina by reconceiving the district to welcome African-American people and culture back with a 21st-century vibrancy. Can well-designed parks and open spaces merge these two futures?
