OHP Mobility Policy Revisions - 2011

Background

The Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) and the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC) established a Joint Subcommittee to consider issues surrounding the Transportation Planning Rule (TPR) and Oregon Highway Plan (OHP) mobility standards (now referred to as targets). The Joint Subcommittee developed priority recommendations for TPR and OHP work with stakeholder input.

ODOT worked to address the Joint Subcommittee’s recommendations for the OHP mobility policy. The OHP establishes highway mobility targets to maintain acceptable and reliable levels of mobility on the state highway system, particularly related to transportation planning decisions. Task considerations for OHP work focused on extensive revisions to OHP Policy 1F, but also include ongoing and future modifications to internal procedures and guidance to implement the revised policy direction.

Senate Bill 795 (2011 Session) supported the work of the Joint Subcommittee and required that the recommendations, including OHP revisions, be addressed prior to January 1, 2012.

DLCD initiated a coordinated process to consider TPR revisions over this same time period.
