Lane County Transportation System Plan

The Transportation System Plan (TSP) is a state-mandated* plan establishing Lane County’s transportation policies and identifying transportation projects needed through 2036 to meet the needs of the community. Lane County’s transportation system is a significant public asset, providing mobility and accessibility to essential employment, goods, and service to business, residents, and visitors alike. This TSP is multi-modal, addressing the needs of many modes, such as cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, farm equipment, bicycles, and people walking or using wheelchairs. The County’s transportation system is also intended to support rural land uses and resource lands. These multiple functions are intended to be balanced throughout this TSP. As a 20-year policy and investment guide, the TSP addresses major systems rather than ongoing operations and maintenance activities. There are additional transportation needs outside the scope of the TSP, for example programs like Transportation Options and Safe Routes to Schools.

Volume 1 Chapters: 

  1. Lane County Today – Sets the stage with Lane County’s existing context and outlines the transportation system, the County’s commitment to safety, and current funding constraints.
  2. Lane County in 2036 – Identifies the importance of a safe, resilient, and sustainable transportation system and outlines the anticipated population and transportation demand growth.
  3. The TSP Process – Outlines the process used to engage with the public and the project advisory committees in developing the TSP and identifies the goals and guiding principles that drove the process.
  4. Guiding Framework – Details the goals and policies forming the guiding principle, system design, and implementation framework that are the basis of the TSP’s project lists.
  5. The Investments – Provides an understanding of the TSP’s approach to meeting transportation needs within the context of existing and anticipated funding gaps. Lists and maps currently funded, financially constrained, and illustrative projects.
  6. Standards – Establishes standards to guide the design, operations, and management of the transportation system consistent with the County’s overall goals and objectives.
  7. The Planning Horizon…And Beyond – Discusses the funding, design, and jurisdictional considerations to be taken as the transportation system is improved and the expected outcomes of that improvement.

*A TSP must be consistent with other TSPs and planning documents governing the region it serves (i.e. the Lane County Rural Comprehensive Plan) and with the Oregon Transportation Plan and its modal and topic plans. TSPs are required by the Transportation Planning Rule documented in the Oregon Administrative Rule 660-012-0015.
