French Prairie Bridge Project Task Force Agrees on Bridge Evaluation Criteria

In May the French Prairie Bridge Project Task Force established proposed evaluation criteria that are to be used this summer to make a bridge alignment recommendation to the Wilsonville City Council later this fall.

 

After extensive discussion , the task force agreed that the bridge evaluation criteria be weighted as follows:

  • Connectivity and Safety - 20%
  • Emergency Access - 20%
  • Environmental Impacts - 11.5%
  • Compatibility with Recreational Goals - 20%
  • Compatibility with Existing and Built Environment - 17%
  • Cost and Economic Impact - 11.5%


The project Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), composed of project partners and agency officials with regulatory authority, originally developed the draft project evaluation criteria for consideration by the task force.


This summer staff and project consultants are finalizing technical research and also are drafting a staff-level performance-evaluation assessment on the three potential bridge locations using the task force’s evaluation criteria. The TAC plans to review this assessment using members’ technical expertise to advise the task force in developing a recommendation on a bridge alignment to present to City Council.


The 21-member task force is charged with making recommendations to the City Council at key milestones in the bridge planning and design process. Members represent a wide range of local and regional stakeholder values and interests. The task force is comprised of representatives of area neighborhoods and businesses, walking and cycling enthusiasts, local parks and trails interests, tourism associations and emergency-services personnel.


Sign-up to receive updates on the French Prairie Bridge Project and notice of the next task force meeting, likely to be held in September, at the website www.FrenchPrairieBridgeProject.org. Additional information about the project evaluation criteria is available in an explanatory memo in the website’s project library.
