Banfield Transitway (Or.), Express highways -- Environmental aspects -- Oregon -- Multnomah County, Transportation -- Oregon -- Multnomah County -- Planning


The purpose of the Banfield Transitway Project is to provide a multi-modal transportation system that will accommodate: (1) projected increases in automobile trips to destinations outside of downtown Portland; and (2) commuter trips to downtown Portland with a higher level of transit service. The intent is to provide such a facility within environmental constraints consistent with local and regional goals, while minimizing disruptions to local communities.

The Banfield Transitway Project will consist of a light rail transit (LRT) system connecting downtown Portland with the City of Gresham that will operate on both city arterials and in exclusive rights-of-way, and improvements to the Banfield Freeway between the I-5 and I-205 corridors.

This is the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEMIS) of the project.
