Hood River Interchange Management Plan for Exits 62, 63 and 64 (I-84)

Project Summary:The Oregon Department of Transportation has studied the need for improvements to the three interchanges on Interstate 84 in Hood River: Exits 62, 63 and 64.
Latest News:ODOT has studied the need for improvements to the three interchanges in Hood River (exits 62, 63 and 64). The project team developed alternative improvements for each of the interchanges, including new road alignments, new signals and potential changes to property access.
The final reports of the Interchange Area Management Plans (IAMP) are available for review (see below; the PDFs are very large files).  
I-84: Exit 62 IAMP
I-84: Exit 63 & 64 IAMP  
Please contact Kristen Stallman at Kristen.Stallman@odot.state.or.us if you would like a copy of the appendices - the file is too large to post online.

Project Overview
What are Interchange Area Management Plans?
An Interchange Area Management Plan (IAMP) is a long-term (20+years), joint ODOT and local government transportation and land use plan, which balances and manages transportation and land use decisions in interchange areas.  It is an important tool in protecting and maintaining the function of state highway interchanges and supporting the local street network. 
Interchange Area Management Plans will help to ensure that growth and development can occur in the vicinity of new interchanges without compromising or overloading the operation of the interchanges. This is consistent with ODOT's mission to ensure safe and effective operation of these facilities and protect Oregon's significant investment in highway infrastructure.  Read more about Interchange Area Management Plans.
How will ODOT develop the Interchange Area Management Plans?
ODOT will develop Interchange Area Management Plans through extensive involvement by residents, property owners, community stakeholders, and local government officials.  It is important that these groups participate and make local knowledge and preferences known. ODOT will complete extensive inventories of existing transportation and land use conditions within about one-half mile of proposed interchanges, and will forecast transportation conditions for a 20 year period. Various options and alternatives will be evaluated before a final Interchange Area Management Plan is recommended to the local Planning Commissions, City Council and County Commission, and the Oregon Transportation Commission.
The IAMPs for the three Hood River interchanges are a partnership between ODOT, the City of Hood River, Hood River County and the Port of Hood River. IAMPs are adopted by the Oregon Transportation Commission and effected cities and counties.  Read the project goals of the Hood River IAMP.
