Welcome to the West Linn Transportation System Plan Online Community Workshop

Although comments are no longer being collected through this forum, you are welcome to submit comments to zpelz@westlinnoregon.gov.

The Transportation System Plan Update will revise local transportation planning goals, objectives and projects to reflect new growth and emissions control strategies identified in the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). State law requires that local agencies bring their TSPs into compliance with the RTP.

This interactive tool includes a series of stations where you can learn more about the project. Thank you for participating.

What is a Transportation System Plan?

A Transportation System Plan is a document that outlines projects, policies and strategies to improve the transportation system over the next 20 to 25 years. Projects, policies and strategies can include:

  • Constructing new roads or modifying existing roads;
  • Constructing new pedestrian and/or bicycle paths;
  • Modifying transit service;
  • Modifying roadway design standards;
  • Modifying access standards; and,
  • Identifying funding strategies to fund the transportation
  • projects, operations and maintenance.

West Linn is required by law to create and update transportation system plans that are consistent with the Metro Transportation Plan and the State’s
Transportation Plans.

The most recent West Linn TSP was completed and adopted in 2008. The purpose of this project is to update that document with current analysis and ideas to solve existing and potential future transportation issues. A complete, up-to-date, and adopted TSP makes it easier for communities to compete and obtain funds and reserve right-of-way to implement the transportation projects needed to improve their system.

Project Background

Despite relatively low growth, much has changed since the last TSP Update in 2008. There have been significant changes in the regional transportation system and significant changes in the assumptions about future regional growth. Based on these changes, the following special interest topics, policy themes, and policy issues are being considered in the update of the TSP. You can learn more about each of these considerations in the project Technical Memos 1: TSP Policy Framework (pdf, 2.9MB), and 2: Transportation Changes Since 2008 (pdf, 1.0MB).

Transportation Changes since 2008

  • Relatively little local land development
  • Regional roadway construction projects (Sellwood bridge, Arch Bridge rehabilitation, Highway 213 jughandle)
  • Incremental infill of sidewalks and bike lanes ongoing

Special Interest Topics

  • Arch Bridge Town Center (addressed separately)
  • Old Willamette Area parking management
  • Decreasing the amount of people who commute alone
  • Expanding transit supportive land uses
  • New ways to measure our transportation system

West Linn policy themes

  • Safety for all modes
  • Increasing mobility through transit
  • "Complete streets" (for walking, biking, and accessing transit, schools, parks, and commercial areas with direct routes)
  • Ensuring I-205 functions well for West Linn citizens
  • Limiting Highway 43 to two to three lanes (improvements for all modes but no more vehicle through lanes)
  • Retain the existing UGB

TSP Policy Issues

  • Current plan includes $40 million (+) new, I-205/10th Street interchange. Geography presents a constraint that a new interchange is unlikely to resolve or overcome.
  • State forecast a significant revenue decline.
  • City’s population density does not support transit expansion yet current policy suggests expanding transit is a solution to increase mobility.
  • City opposes UGB expansion yet has limited supply of buildable land.

Key Outcomes and Evaluation Criteria

The TSP goals are based upon the city’s 2008 Imagine West Linn process, the Comprehensive Plan, and regional transportation goals. The evaluation criteria will be used to ensure that proposed set of projects will be effective in achieving the city’s goals. Read more about the project goals and evaluation criteria in Technical Memo 3: Performance Outcomes and Key Measures Workshop (pdf, 290KB).

Goal 1 - Safety: Reduce transportation related fatalities and injuries for all transportation modes +

Evaluation Criteria

  • Would likely reduce severe injury and fatal crashes
  • Would likely reduce the number of high collision locations

Goal 2 - Mobility, Access and Environment: Improve people’s access to jobs, schools, healthcare and other needs in ways that improve health, reduce pollution and retain money in the local economy +

Evaluation Criteria

  • Would likely reduce VMT
  • Supports a compact urban form and would likely increase non-SOV modes of travel in 2040 Regional Investment Centers
  • Would result in improved freight travel time reliability
  • Would allow more people to access schools, parks, and employment and commercial areas within 20 minute walk, bike or bus ride
  • Relates to implementation of a transportation options program
  • Would result in “good” or better level of quality bicycle or pedestrian facility
  • Is a “green street” facility

Goal 3 - Equity: Deliver transportation improvements equitably +

Evaluation Criteria

  • Would allow more people, considered transportation disadvantaged, to access schools, parks, and employment and commercial areas within 20 minute walk, bike, or bus ride
  • Located in an area where transportation investments have not been made in past 10 years

Goal 4 - Maintenance:Deliver access and safety improvements cost effectively, within available revenues and responsibly to the needs of all users of the transportation system +

Evaluation Criteria

  • Improves the pavement condition index
  • Is an improvement to a facility that is considered “distressed”
  • Supports a compact urban form and would likely increase non-SOV modes of travel in 2040 Regional Investment Centers

    Highway 43 Concept Plan Projects

The Highway 43 Concept Plan was developed by the City of West Linn in coordination with ODOT as part of the 2008 TSP update. The Plan identifies the needs, deficiencies, and solutions for the portion of Highway 43 between the north City limits and McKillican Street that are assumed for the TSP update, such as pedestrian crossings, street trees, landscaping, transit stops, and lighting to better support the needs of all roadway users as well as adjacent land uses. The Plan is currently being updated concurrent with the TSP update. The findings of the updated Plan will be incorporated into the TSP. Learn more on the Highway 43 project website.

Projects identified in the plan:

  • Hwy43-1 Cross section improvements - Highway 43 from Marylhurst Drive to Hidden Springs Road
  • Hwy43-2 Cross section improvements - Highway 43 from West A Street to Webb Street
  • Hwy43-3 Cross section improvements - Highway 43 from Webb Street to Hood-McKillican Street
  • Hwy43-4 Cross section improvements - Highway 43 from Hidden Springs Road to Pimlico Drive
  • Hwy43-5 Cross section improvements - Highway 43 from Pimlico Drive to Buck Street
  • Hwy43-6 Install a traffic signal at the intersection of Highway 43 / Pimlico Drive, when warranted
  • Hwy43-7 Modify circulation at the intersection of Highway 43 / Lewis Street
  • Hwy43-8 Cross section improvements - Highway 43 from Northern City limits to Marylhurst Drive
  • Hwy43-9 Modify circulation at the intersection of Highway 43 / Holmes Street
  • Hwy43-10 Realign the driveway near the intersection of Highway 43 / Cedar Oaks Drive
  • Hwy43-11 Strip a left-turn lane at the intersection of Highway 43 / Arbor Drive
  • Hwy43-12 Modify the signal timing at the intersection of Highway 43 / Hood-McKillican Street
