We are committed to engaging the community to help develop cost-effective solutions to improve safety.
March 2018 outreach and engagement
In March, we conducted a survey to better understand needs, problems and priorities within this corridor. The survey was advertised online via Facebook, Nextdoor, Twitter, Reddit and local news media. We also notified families within the Vancouver School District about the survey and sent mailers to area neighborhoods.
More than 2,500 area residents and travelers who drive, walk, or bike on this section of SR 500 provided input. Nearly 70 percent of survey respondents began their trips in the study area. Here’s what we heard about their priorities:
|Access to SR 500|
|Crossing SR 500|
|Impacts to Property|
Who did we hear from?
Zip codes where respondents reported their SR 500 trips starting
Trip starting locations by zip code
Zip codes where respondents reported their SR 500 trips ending
Destination locations by zip code
Stakeholder Group Input
The study team also met with key stakeholders, including neighborhood associations, fire and police departments, and the Vancouver School District to better understand their needs and the challenges they currently experience in the study area.

The team used input from the survey and conversations with key stakeholders to develop the three concepts you will read about on the “Concepts” page.
