The amendment recommends a change to the bicycle classification designation on SE/ NE Sandy Blvd from SE Washington St to NE 122nd Ave, from City Bikeway to Major City Bikeway.

New sub-policy 9.22.a as adopted in the Enhanced Transit Corridors Plan: “Consider and incorporate transit priority treatments, such as those in the PBOT Enhanced Transit Corridors Plan, to improve transit speed and reliability during the planning and design phase of capital projects and permitted projects along streets served by transit lines.”

Policy 9.49 amended to add mobility standard tables that are referenced, but missing in the 2035 Comprehensive Plan.

Policies 9.68 and 9.69 amended to broaden connected and automated vehicle policies to include new mobility vehicles and services.

Community Involvement Objectives re-labeled to "sub-policies" to maintain consistency with the rest of the TSP and the 2035 Comprehensive Plan.

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.
