1 Moving Goods, Creating Jobs: Planning Portland Region Corridors for Economic Growth

2 How Can ODOT Support Portland-Area Economic Growth and Job Creation?  Understand the role of freight in key job-growth sectors  Identify key regional job-growth areas that generate freight traffic (Economic Areas)  Identify and prioritize the key corridors serving those sites (Economic Corridors)  Evaluate the performance of corridors in relation to serving freight movement

3 Portland Regional Context – Why Freight Matters?  Traded Industries are the core of the economy  Goods production and movement relies upon the highway system for connecting to shipping gateways  Economic growth relies upon maintaining regionally competitive levels of access and shipping reliability

4 Portland Regional Context – Why Freight Matters?  A growing demand on freight movement:  Internet purchasing and delivery  Global supply chains  Available prime industrial areas on the fringe of the urban boundary  Competition for road capacity in a fiscally constrained region

5 Identifying Key Economic Areas  Industrial Employment Thresholds  3,000+ jobs today  1,000+ job growth  Types of employment  Manufacturing  Wholesale Trade

6 Identifying Key Economic Areas



9 Identifying Key Economic Corridors  Travel Shed Evaluation  All Industrial Trips  Key Site Trips  Number of Sites Served  Regional Truck Volumes

10 Prioritization of Key Economic Corridors

11 Evaluating Key Economic Corridors  What performance measures matter for freight movement?  Industrial Traffic Volume  Peak Hour Congestion  Duration of Congestion  Travel Time Reliability  24-hour Corridor Speed Profiles  Travel Time Range  Travel Time Buffer Index  How does performance change in future year forecasts?

12 Evaluating Key Economic Corridors  Hourly Volume Profile Projections

13 Evaluating Key Economic Corridors  Estimating Average Congested Link Speeds (vdf functions)

14 Evaluating Key Economic Corridors  Data Mining Travel Speed Variance (RSME = 0.045)

15 Evaluating Key Economic Corridors  Developing Predictive Tools (Year 2005 to 2035) I-5 Northbound (North Wilsonville to OR 217)

16 Evaluating Key Economic Corridors



19 Portland Region Economic Corridors Evaluation Report  Congestion on key economic corridors will significantly increase over the next 25 years, degrading reliability  Understanding the location and condition of key economic corridors can help:  Prioritize locations for regional investment to maintain competitiveness for industrial growth  Guide decision making about acceptable performance and design on the regional system:  Development approval along key economic corridors  Compatibility of urban “centers” planning with freight corridor needs
