The City of Eugene is creating a plan to improve transportation safety and reliability for residents and business, as well as making it easy for everyone to get around! By updating its Transportation System Plan (TSP) the City is looking for ways to improve the transportation system over the next 20 years for people traveling by bike, foot, wheelchairs and scooters, bus, car, truck, train, and airplane! The plan will be coordinated with Envision Eugene, Eugene Bike and Pedestrian Plan, the Eugene Airport Master Plan, and other regional transportation plans. These plans complement each other by covering different topics: Transportation System Plan addresses Eugene's transportation needs, while Envision Eugene plans for the City's housing and employment needs over the next 20 years.
There are draft goals and objectives and a list of construction projects that should be considered for implementation. Work in 2014 is focused on comparing, narrowing, and selecting the projects to include in the Transportation System Plan.
Where do we go from here?
The result of all this study will be a plan for bicycle, pedestrian, freight, road, rail, and air projects that will help the City meet long-term transportation needs and reach its goals for reducing transportation impacts on the environment.
