Transportation System Plan

Cars in traffic

The City of Camas is continuing to work on the Transportation System Plan (TSP), and we appreciate your help so far!

As you may be aware, this plan will guide how we develop and invest in streets, pedestrian and bike facilities, and transit to meet the current and future needs of Camas and the surrounding areas. It will help determine which projects, policies, and programs are important to enhancing the quality of life in the city.

With this in mind, we ask that you complete the TSP survey #1, below. The information you provide will help us better understand the issues we’re currently facing, and it will help us develop solutions that will serve the community for years to come!

The TSP provides the basis for prioritizing projects and calculating Traffic Impact Fees. Additionally, the TSP helps to secure State and Federal Funding for those projects.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

    I am concerned about the cost effectiveness of the transportation plan being proposed. I suggest we keep the speed limits low: for example, in the back country it could easily be 40mph. I also suggest putting up warning signs at sharp curves. That, more than anything would keep our motorists, pedestrians, kids and animals safe. Please consider these simple and inexpensive solutions before beginning to straighten and widening roads.

    Thank you for using Engage Camas.  We will provide your comment and suggestions to staff and the consultants currently working on the project.  In addition, the City has applied for grant funding for curve safety improvements on roads that are within the city limits.

    WHY do people make so much noise against light rail? Even under the very best of circumstances that's many years down the road. So why is that even in the conversation right now? But since it is. I'm all for it. I support any green way possible to get us out of our cars and trucks, most of which only have one person in them.

    I would love to see sidewalks put in on SE 15th street between Camas High School and NE Umatilla St. So many kids walk from the neighborhood to the high school and the is barley any space for them to walk on SE 15th. It is very concerning and a huge safety issue.

    Why when choosing an image to represent traffic in Camas, why didn't you use an image of traffic in Camas? Don't you see this as being a bit disingenuous?

    Leslie C asked about 1 month ago

    Thank you for using Engage Camas.  The image is simply a stock image to portray transportation, so that individuals will easily recognize the project each time. We're certainly not trying to portray that Camas has traffic issues like a big city, it's more about branding the project. However, we will take your concern into consideration for future projects.

    We have live in the same neighborhood for 15yrs. Top of Prune Hill. We are desperate for sidewalks along 16th, and 18th. Along the deer house and past the water towers. So dangerous for all bikers and walks for which there are many. Also, Cascade is now very busy and in desperate need to speed bumps or street narrowing islands. People drive 45 to 50mph along the street. Kids ,including our own play and ride bike all through this neighborhood. Recently, a driver looking at their phone ran straight into a street light. We worry for the kids and our home. This simple improvements are long overdue!

    Are there any plans for a crosswalk at 3rd and Joy? People drive incredibly fast on 3rd even though the speed limit is low, and Louis Bloch park would be much safer to access if there were a crosswalk here.

    cthompson asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for your question. A crosswalk in this location would need to include enhanced warning and safety measures in order to get the attention of motorists. This improvement has been identified in City’s Local Road Safety Plan.

    Is there any hope of having a cross walk put in on 3rd from 1st street that goes to Lacamas Creek. It is pretty dangerous there without it. There are lights at the bottom of the hill but people drive too fast so this would help more

    Thank you for using Engage Camas. A crosswalk in this location would need to include enhanced warning and safety measures in order to get the attention of motorists. This improvement is being considered as a potential project in the City’s plans.

    The intersection of NE 252nd Avenue and NE 28th street is a site of frequent accidents and close calls. Currently there is a stop sign on 252nd. Couldn't that intersection be made into a 3-way stop. Would cost hardly anything and will save a future life (lives). Thanks

    No questions here: I just want to thank you for offering this venue for sharing our experiences and concerns. It seems to me that in planning for the future, alternative modes of transportation aside from cars is critical for our future. Safe pedestrian and bicycle paths enhance safety, citizen health, and reduce pollution. I suspect our city is sensitive to this, so I want to applaud this movement toward a healthier, safer, more sustainable future. I'm willing to pay out more tax dollars for this! I hope Camas is able to work with Washougal to expand safe pedestrian and bicycle traffic as our boundaries are kind of....weird. Cheers!

    Are there plans to build sidewalks along Crown Road from 3rd up to Woodburn Elementary? We recently moved to Camas (Lookout Ridge neighborhood) from Seattle and I took my 2.5 year old daughter on a jog in her jogging stroller from our house to the upper Lacamas park entrance, however it was TERRIFYING. The shoulder sluffs down and there is not even a foot of pavement outside the white line. I had to run in traffic for the 50 yards or so while cars swerved around us after coming around the corner. It was extremely dangerous and now I must drive to a different entrance instead, I won't be doing that ever again even though it's so close and a convenient entrance to the park. Seems to be a great place to provide a safe walking area near the school, especially since there is now a new development going in just down the road (Magnolia Ridge), that is within walking distance of Woodburn Elem... but with a very dangerous stretch of road children will be tempted to walk along. Thank you for consideration!

    Thank you for your question and for using Engage Camas! Crown Road is predominantly a County road with the Washougal city limits bordering a large portion of the east side of the roadway. Camas and Washougal have worked together to come up with a plan for a pedestrian and bicycle path on the east side of Crown Road. One Washougal developer has already built a portion of the shared use path. While this path is intended to extend from NE 3rd Avenue up to Woodburn Elementary School and is reflected in the Camas long range plan and list of projects, the improvements are not currently funded. Please note that your comments have been delivered to staff and will be taken into consideration!
