The Corvallis City Council voted unanimously to oppose the Oregon Department of Transportation order to close Seventh and 11th street at railroad crossings in downtown Corvallis.

Several citizens testified that closing Seventh and 11th Streets would restrict access from the Avery Addition neighborhood.

State law allows ODOT to close street level railroad crossing, when deemed unsafe, without a public process.

According to ODOT, the City of Corvallis is responsible for collecting public comment and then presenting it in an appeal to an administrative law judge.
