The Oregon Transportation Commission has proposed spending 30% of $3.3 billion to fix roads, bridges and public transportation according to a released draft of its 2024-2027 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will spend 24% on public and active transportation. Every three years, the commission puts together the STIP that lays out where state and federal funding will be spent in support of the transportation system.

In Washington County, $4 million will be spent on right of way in 2024 and $38.1 million on construction in 2026 on a new arterial roadway providing industrial freight access in the Basalt Creek planning area. The extension of the parkway is an east-west alignment crossing the Seely Ditch with a 600-foot-long bridge.

In Clackamas County, $56.8 million will be spent on preliminary engineering in 2024 and $111.5 million will be spent in 2025 on construction for congestion pricing implementation across all lanes to manage congestion on Interstate 5 and I-205 in a manner that will generate revenue for transportation system investments.

In 2024, $27.6 million will be spent in Coos County to design and construct curb ramps on US101/OR540 to meet compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.

Virtual public sessions will be held throughout April and comments are accepted through April 28. All comments will be included in the public comment record that goes to the commission before they approve the final STIP in July.
