The City of Lake Oswego’s transportation system plan (TSP) is an important document for long-range planning purposes as well as a tool for current developments. The TSP provides a snapshot of the existing system, immediate changes, and future plans into year 2035. The last TSP was published in 1997. Many changes have occurred since that time and the new plan will be reflective of City code updates, new state and regional TSP requirements, and a more complete transportation network.
Kittelson & Associates is the engineering consultant hired to assist the City with the update. Our regional partners include TriMet, Clackamas County, Metro, and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT).
The TSP also includes a long list of projects for upgrading and enhancing the transportation system, including automobiles, transit, bicycling, and pedestrian improvements. A consistent theme is to make walking, cycling, and transit more convenient to reduce congestion on the roadways rather than adding capacity (new lanes) to existing roads. Upon a rigorous scoring and cost estimating process, all projects are then transferred to the Capital Improvement Plan regardless of dedicated funding sources. As funding becomes available through annual City budget review or during the private development process, these projects are constructed.
