The TSP is the transportation element of the Comprehensive Plan, meeting state and regional planning requirements. The 2035 TSP was adopted by City Council in three stages between December 2016 and May 2018 (Ordinance No: 187832, 188177, 188957). The first two stages were part of the periodic review process for the 2035 Comprehensive Plan.
A transportation system plan is intended to be updated at regular intervals to remain consistent with local and regional transportation planning and land use activities. Since the adoption of the 2035 TSP, refinement and area plans have been or will be adopted by City Council that help implement the TSP. These include:
Additionally, the Metro Council adopted the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) in December 2018. Proposed changes to the TSP will maintain consistency with the updated RTP
In 2019, the TSP will be updated. The update will not change most policies, classifications, and projects that were adopted as part of the 2035 TSP. This will be a technical update which will incorporate policies and projects that have been recommended for inclusion in the TSP by City Council as part of other adopted planning projects. Proposed changes may include:
- New pedestrian classification descriptions and maps as recommended in PedPDX.
- Amendments to a subset of existing projects as recommended by adopted plans.
- New projects as identified by adopted plans and in the Regional Transportation Plan.
- Corrections for errata and language clarifications.
