Benton County Transportation System Plan (TSP)

Project Type:
Planning
Project Status: 
Underway

A grant has been obtained to update the County's Transportation System Plan.  This planning document is required by the State and should be updated approximately every 20 years.  Typically, a consultant is used to complete a majority of the update; however, staff has a lot of input and the Roads Advisory Committee (RAC) will be instrumental in the update.

THE WEBSITE FOR THE 2017-2018 TSP UPDATE IS FOUND HERE.

The Transportation System Plan (TSP) contains the following :

- 20 Year Transportation Vision and Goals

- Roadway Plan

- Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan

- Public Transportation Plan

- Air,Rail, and Pipeline Plan

- Strategies on project funding, priorities, and timing

The plan looks at existing and future conditions and lists possible projects. This plan will reference the City of Albany, Corvallis, and Philomath's TSPs. This plan will also have an appendix for the City of Adair Village and Monroe.

Grant Amount : Approx. $200,000

Funding : TGM (Transportation Growth Management) Grant

Consultant : DKS Associates
