Proposed West Linn Solar Highway
Project status
ODOT held an open house for the West Linn Solar Highway Project on March 30, 2010, at the Willamette Christian Church in West Linn. About 80 people attended the event, where they found information and were able to ask questions about various aspects of the proposed project and other related topics, including:
  • Wetlands
  • Biology
  • Noise
  • Security
  • Environmental regulations
  • Stormwater
  • Geology
  • PGE
  • SolarWorld
  • City Bicycle/Trail Project
ODOT thanks everyone who participated in the event. 
PROJECT STATUS: The West Linn site is now included in ODOT’s solar highway project site inventory. Due to the requirements of the State’s Business Energy Tax Credit (BETC), the project will not be financed until 2012 at the earliest. ODOT may elect to initiate the process to acquire a land use permit from the city of West Linn in advance of project financing. That process includes public notice and a public hearing. Construction would begin after the city permitting process is completed and after financing is in place. 
FEASIBILITY STUDY COMMENTS AND RESPONSES: Any changes in the project status will be announced on this website. For additional information, please contact Project Director Allison Hamilton: allison.m.hamilton@odot.state.or.us
