Metro is in receipt of the proposed MTIP formal amendments:
The purpose of this amendment is to make the necessary funding corrections, increases and fund reprogramming to the 2024-27 MTIP. This amendment adds 15 new project awards as well as amends and cancels four existing Oregon Department of Transportation projects to meet federal delivery requirements:
- Funds are available for projects to respond to urgent safety concerns in Clackamas, Hood River, Multnomah and Washington counties (FFY25).
- Funds are available for projects to respond to urgent safety concerns in Clackamas, Hood River, Multnomah and Washington counties (FFY26).
- Repair significant bridge footing erosion to protect the Troutdale (Sandy River) bridge structure from further damage.
- Updgrade signals, replace or modify signs and road markings and install lighting and bike lane conflict markings to imrpove safety along Oregon Route 99W from Ross Island Bridge to Southwest Wills Lane and along US Route 30B from Kerby Avenue to 165th Avenue.
- Complete preliminary design activities for the Beaverton downtown loop including various pedestrian and street upgrades, protected bikeways, wider sidewalks, traffic signal upgrades, new bus stops, landscaping, stormwater upgrades and roadway reconstruction.
- Complete trail segments and driveway crossings along the six-mile Council Creek Regional Trail corridor from Douglas Street to Hatfield Government Center to facilitate safe pedestrian and bicycle connections between the centers of Forest Grove, Cornelius and Hilsboro.
- Design and construct new industrial collector along Ice Age Drive between Southwest Oregon Street and Southwest Dahlke Lane to ease traffic flow on Southwest Tualatin-Sherwood Road, improve Interstaste 5 access and support companies' relocation to the Sherwood Tonquin Employment Area.
- Purchase three full-sized, electric-powered, zero-emissions, fixed-route, replacement buses for the TriMet fleet to support climate greenhouse gas reduction strategies.
- Develop Transportation System Management and Operations (TSMO) accessibility and navigation tools through the collection of sidewalk accessibility data to improve mobility, address sidewalk connectivity and identify accessibility barriers by finding the most barrier-free travel route for people with disabilities.
- Across the Metro Metropolitan Planning Area boundary, complete various TSMO/Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) planning activities (e.g. planning support, operator agreement development, TSMO data research, training and communications support, etc.) to help accelerate the implementation of the 2021 TSMO Strategy to provide upgraded ITS systems management abilities supporting motorist's mobility and safety needs.
- Complete various TSMO program update activities including the identification of the next generation of signal priority projects, 2021 TSMO Strategy progress evaluation and ITS architecture update.
- Purchase various replacement ITS network equipment upgrades at an estimated 11 Oregon-side locations of TSMO partner agencies to prevent system failures or vulnerability to cybersecurity threats.
- Construct an approximately 800-foot multi-use path across Columbia View Park in Gresham for pedestrian and local bicycle route connectivity and school access.
- Construct an approximately 1,400-foot multi-use path across North Gresham Park for pedestrian and local bicycle route connectivity and school access.
- In the city of Happy Valley between the Oregon Route 212/224 interchange and then south to the Springwater Bridge, complete project development/refinement activities to construct a later multi-use trail (approximately 6,250 feet long) that will offer pedestrian and bicyclists improved safety with an off-street, multi-use trail with wayfinding signage and will connect with employment, residential and recreational uses.
- Design and construct three key roadway trail crossing safety upgrades to the Fanno Creek regional trail including one at Tigard Street, one at North Dakota Street and one at Southwest Hall Boulevard.
- Refinement study and conceptual design for a proposed approximately 500-foot pedestrian and bicycle bridge over Highway 217 at Southwest 95th Avenue.
- Refine the scope for an approximately 700-foot bike and pedestrian bridge in Troutdale providing safe crossings over 257th Drive connecting downtown to the Halsey corridor and the Historic Columbia River Highway bike trail.
