What is Vancouver Moves?

Vancouver Moves is a plan to guide the City's future transportation system. Vancouver Moves also serves as the update to the City's Transportation System Plan, last updated in 2004. The plan will explore transportation needs and priorities in partnership with Vancouver residents, employees and visitors.

The Transportation System Plan will examine existing travel conditions for all users of the city's transportation system, including those who drive, walk, bicycle, ride transit or deliver freight. The City will also talk to residents about their transportation priorities, with additional focus on communities that have been historically under-served by transportation investments.

Building from these conversations over the coming year, Vancouver Moves will identify recommended policies, programs and projects to guide the City's transportation future.


Why transportation matters

Vancouver residents depend on the transportation system every day.

Transportation matters because everyone in Vancouver deserves a safe and reliable transportation system that meets their daily needs. Much has changed since the City’s current Transportation System Plan was adopted in 2004. Since 2010, Vancouver has welcomed more than 14,000 new residents and 10,000 new jobs, meaning the transportation system must meet the needs of a growing community. The transportation system must also adapt to changing community needs, including impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, while supporting the city's health and economy.


Learn more about transportation today

On November 12 2020, the City launched an Online Open House to share an overview of Vancouver Moves, information about the current transportation system, and to give our community an opportunity to provide feedback to help shape the City's future transportation plans. The public comment period for this open house is now closed, but you can still visit the Online Open House to learn more about transportation today.

The City is committed to an inclusive process, so hard copy and other accessible materials can be provided as needed. In addition, you can always request accommodations through the City's Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Program.

    I live on SE Park Crest Ave. in east Vancouver. Many of the streets in our neighborhood are in serious need of repair due to cracked pavement, potholes, weeds growing through cracks in pavement. When are these streets going to get repaired ? I've owned this property since 2009, have seen many other streets around here getting work done, but not on my street.

    Thank you for your question! The City of Vancouver maintains about 1,900 lanes miles of paved streets. Each year, as part of Vancouver's Pavement Management program, staff evaluates pavement conditions and determines the most cost-effective methods to extend the life of our streets. When streets begin to fail, they fail quickly and the cost to repair them increases dramatically. To use resources most efficiently, the city's primary focus has been on keeping good streets in good condition. You can learn more about the Pavement Management program at www.cityofvancouver.us/pavement. 

    SE Park Crest Avenue pavement conditions have been identified as failing or poor. Fixing them will require repaving, which is more expensive than a slurry seal or other pavement preservation. With the exception of 2020, the city has typically been able to rehabilitate/repave 2 or 3 areas of failed streets within different neighborhoods each year. We currently anticipate SE Park Crest Avenue to be rehabilitated/repaved within the next 3-4 years. For efficiency, other nearby streets in the will likely be included in pavement work when that occurs. 

    In the meantime, to have potholes filled, please report these online at www.cityofvancouver.us/servicerequest or www.cityofvancouver.us/MyVancouver. Be sure to provide a cross street or detailed location. Thank you.

    Why are the cuttings trees down on 15th street

    Rodie asked 5 months ago

    Hi and thank you for your question. 

    Washington State Dept of Transportation (WSDOT) has begun a travel-and-safety improvement project on Mill Plain/15th Street, which is also SR 501. WSDOT's contractor is removing trees damaging roadway/sidewalks. City of Vancouver will be working through our Urban Forestry Program to replant the corridor with new, suitable street trees. Read more about the WSDOT project here: The WSDOT Blog - Washington State Department of Transportation: Coming this summer: A new and improved Mill Plain Boulevard in downtown Vancouver
