Transportation System and Services

The Lake Oswego Transportation System includes more than 178 miles of streets, 26 traffic signals, 12.0 miles of pedestrian pathways, and shared ownership of the Jefferson Street Rail Line within the city limits. The streets are classified as major and minor arterials, major collectors, neighborhood collectors, and local residential streets and traffic counts are available on line.

Traffic management is a function of the City Public Works, Engineering Department.  Functions include the Willamette Shore Trolley, Pathways, assisting the Transportation Advisory Board, the Traffic Counts Program, as well as general transportation related issues.

The City’s Transportation System Plan (TSP) provides a plan for the development of the City’s transportation infrastructure. Specific projects are further developed as resources become available. The TSP includes elements for roadways, bike, pedestrian, transit and rail related improvements.
