From OPB: How freeway builders collided with Oregonís growth management system

Pretty good look into the 1980s revival of a west side freeway proposal.

That was a great read. Thanks for sharing, Bruce.

I have to echo their frustration, at least long term. Washington County doesn't seem to have pulled enough from that LUTRAQ proposal over the years, and I think you can see that in the dwindling MAX ridership numbers, even pre-pandemic. Development patterns seem to have changed very little since the 1960s and 1970s, with only slightly more density in certain pockets. Enough hasn't changed that, frankly, I'm not sure the lack of a bypass has truly had any positive effect on development patterns. The lack of a bypass may have resulted in more infill than if a bypass were built, no doubt, but I'm not convinced the differences of that alternate reality and what we see today would be remarkably different.

Was any map ever made public showing the route options?

1000 Friends of Oregon posted it on their Instagram today but of course it showed the broad corridors, showing that literally half of Washington County would become a freeway.

Is there any way to determine Umatilla County routes? Old 395 west of Pendleton is definitely one but there are no signs with route numbers.

You mean the alignment through Echo? That's old US 30; US 395 went along OR 37.

Some counties include the numbers of their roads on their GIS maps. I'm on my phone right now, so I haven't checked yet if Umatilla County's GIS has that. I'll see if I can pull it up and find anything out.

Edit: It looks like the number is included in the GIS data, as CO_RD_NUM. Umatilla River Road and Rieth Road, the former US-30 alignments, are defined as Co. Rd. 1275 and Co. Rd. 1300 respectively.
