What is the I-5 Wilsonville Facility Plan?
The I-5 Wilsonville Facility Plan
evaluates and addresses operational problems on I-5 southbound (SB) from the Wilsonville Road on-ramp (Exit 283) to the Canby-Hubbard off-ramp (Exit 282A) and proposes a solution.
A new bottleneck has emerged on I-5 in Wilsonville, slowing speeds and reducing travel reliability for people travelling southbound by car, by transit, or moving goods by truck. Failure to address this bottleneck will lead to slower travel, more costly goods movement, reduced livability, and higher safety risks for those who use I-5 and the surrounding local transportation network.
The Wilsonville City Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing on June 4, and consider a resolution of support.
The final plan goes to Oregon Transportation Commission in July to be considered for adoption as an amendment to the Oregon Highway Plan. ODOT intends to propose the ramp-to-ramp configuration in the adopted plan as a project for the 2018 update of the Metro Regional Transportation Plan.
Due to a large backlog of transportation projects and limited funds, ODOT anticipates available funding for this project in the 2028-2040 timeframe. The state would seek to combine the ramp-to-ramp lane project with a seismic upgrade of the Boone Bridge.
