The City of Springfield completed a planning process to look at how the transportation system is currently used and how it should change to meet the long-term (20-year) needs of Springfield’s residents, businesses, and visitors. Through coordination with community members and affected public agencies, the City of Springfield developed a Transportation System Plan (TSP) for improvements of all modes of transportation in Springfield, including the roadway, bicycle and pedestrian, transit, and rail networks. The plan also include a transportation improvement and financing plan.
The Springfield TSP will also serve as Springfield’s portion of the Regional Transportation System Plan (RTSP) being prepared by the Lane Council of Governments.
The TSP was prepared in coordination with the Oregon Department of Transportation, Lane Council of Governments, and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development. This project considered local, regional and state policies, plans, and rules, including the Oregon Highway Plan and the region’s transportation system plan.
The community's involvement was very important in planning for Springfield's transportation future! To learn more about the history and purpose of the project, read about the project background, as well as the opportunities that were available for the community to participate.
The Springfield City Council held public hearings for the Springfield TSP before adopting the TSP document, along with the Lane County Board of Commissioners, on March 11, 2014.
