Albina then and now

Basically, Albina was wiped out by
Interstate Ave 99E (ODOT)   1951
Memorial Coliseum (City) 1958
I-5 1962
Emmanuel Hospital (PDC)  1970s
Blanchard Center (PPS)  1980
Convention Center 1990 (expanded 2003)
Moda Center/Rose Garden 1995
But ODOT’s two highways cut all this off from the rest of the city.  99E/Interstate cut the
neighborhood off from the River; I-5 cut if off from the rest of N/NE Portland.
