Plot a clear course for your community
Your TSP tells others how transportation policies and investments support your broader community and regional goals. Being able to see where these goals overlap with those of other agencies opens valuable opportunities for collaboration.
Not only does a TSP provide a necessary linkage to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program to secure funding, it also provides the policy foundation and documentation of need to support other transportation funding decisions and requests.
Read how TSP updates have helped communities fund system investments, coordinate with other jurisdictions and agencies, and deliver projects.
The Wilsonville TSP Update, funded through the Oregon Transportation and Growth Management program, will help the city pursue funding for projects on the state system. Adding these projects on the state system to the city's TSP will allow them to be added to the Regional Transportation Plan, a critical step in increasing their potential for funding.
See "I-5/Wilsonville Road interchange discussed by Wilsonville council" from the Portland Tribune.
As part of its Transportation and Growth Management-funded TSP update, the City of Ashland examined a road diet on North Main Street (OR 99) which would reduce the number of lanes from four to three, providing room for bicycle lanes. North Main Street is an alternative route to I-5, so ODOT's Commerce and Compliance Division was brought in. After extensive consultations between the city and state and a major public involvement effort, the city proceeded with a one-year pilot project to restripe North Main Street. After the one-year pilot period, the city council voted to make the road diet permanent.

The City of Newberg was awarded an Oregon Transportation and Growth Management grant to prepare a pedestrian and bicycle plan, with a special emphasis on identifying a critical core network of Americans with Disability Act, or ADA accessible routes. Rather than wait until funding can be secured to construct improvements along an entire corridor, the plan identifies spot improvements that can strategically and affordably remove barriers along a route quicker and for a fraction of the cost. This plan resulted in an amendment to the City's TSP updating the bicycle and pedestrian elements to include the critical routes and improvements.
For more information on plan implementation, see the excerpt from TGM Tangibles Volume II.
