Corridor Planning
Program Overview

1992´s groundbreaking policies in the Oregon Transportation Plan began balancing highways with other means of transportation, and transportation with other resources and community values. This comprehensive approach to transportation planning is known as Corridor Planning.
Corridor plans will be used in coordination with other planning efforts to develop the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and the development of specific transportation improvement projects.
Corridor planning is being carried out in three phases that progress from general to specific recommendations.
Phase 1 involves the development of a corridor strategy that identifies a set of general transportation goals, policies and objectives for each corridor.
Phase 2 involves development of a corridor plan. A corridor plan combines a transportation improvement and management element (TIME) for a corridor with city and county Transportation Systems Plans (TSPs) within the corridor.
Phase 3 of corridor planning involves developing refinement plans for specific areas within the corridor. Refinement plans will be used to resolve particular environmental, land use or access management issues that require more detailed information and analysis.
Region 4 has completed three corridor strategies and one corridor plan.
