Lake Oswego to Portland Transit Study Health Impact Assessment
Oregon Public Health Institute (OPHI)
Over the course of 2010 OPHI partnered with Metro Regional Government to conduct a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) of Metro's Lake Oswego to Portland Transit Study. Transit Study was a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) evaluating the potential impacts of three different transit scenarios for the highway 43 corridor between downtown Lake Oswego and downtown Portland -- a no-build scenario, a street car scenario, and an enhanced bus service scenario. Metro completed the Transit Study in late 2010. The goal of the HIA is to evaluate the health impacts of these scenarios related to:
• Opportunities for physical activity
• Exposure to air toxics
• Safety from traffic accidents
• Access to health-supportive resources
