Streetcar One Step Closer to Lake Oswego

The Community Advisory Committee for the Lake Oswego to Portland Transit Project has recommended the Streetcar alternative, using Macadam Avenue in Johns Landing.

The committee further recommends that the other two major alignment questions, how to route through Dunthorpe (on the existing rail right of way or on Riverwood Rd) and whether or not to dip into the Foothills area in Lake Oswego, be carried into the Final Environmental Impact Statement process.

The vote was 16 votes for Streetcar, 2 for Enhanced Bus and one for the no-build option.

The Project Management Group (staff) will make their recommendation next week, and the project steering committee (mostly elected officials) will consider both recommendations and forward a recommendation to the variety of local governments involved for final adoption.
