Welcome!

The City of Corvallis is updating its Transportation System Plan (TSP) and Transit Development Plan (TDP). At this online open house, you can review proposed transportation solutions and share your top transportation priority projects for walking, biking, driving, freight and public transit improvements.

The survey portion of this site is no longer active, though you can always submit comments through the project website.

Project Overview and Evaluation Process

Last fall, the project hosted an open house to talk to the community about current transportation needs and collect ideas on improving travel around Corvallis. Since then, the project team has developed proposed transportation solutions for driving, biking, walking and transit. The City is now determining its top priority projects. In this open house, you will learn more about how these projects were developed and evaluated and have the opportunity to provide your input.

Anticipated Funding

  • TSP Funding: There are more than $1 billion in transportation system improvements proposed as part of this Transportation System Plan (TSP) update. The City of Corvallis will have approximately $42 million to spend on projects from the TSP through the year 2040, after maintenance and operations costs are covered. Funding sources of future improvements may include the developers, the City, County, and State. Cost, in addition to stakeholder input and evaluation results, will factor into the City's final prioritized project list.
  • Transit Funding: HB 2017 will provide the City with additional transit revenue for operating and capital needs. Initial projections estimate $1-$2 million per year for the City.

How Proposed Solutions Were Developed and Evaluated

The recommended transportation solutions were based on the project goals and objectives and input from three main sources:

  • Stakeholder input
  • Previous plans (such as the 1996 TSP and area plans for North, South, and West Corvallis)
  • Technical evaluation (Technical Memoranda #7 and #12)

The solutions were compared to a set of evaluation criteria. The criteria were developed directly from the project goals and objectives and are intended to see how strongly each solution supports community-expressed interests.

Evaluation Criteria

+ Goal 1: Provide an efficient transportation system that supports economic vitality by facilitating the local and regional movement of people and goods.

Evaluation Criteria

  • Significantly reduces vehicle-miles traveled (VMT)
  • Improves the performance of a substandard intersection
  • Significantly improves travel time on a freight route during the PM peak
  • Significantly improves percentage of households and employment in close proximity to high quality pedestrian or bicycle facilities
  • Significantly improves percentage of households and employment near (within ¼-mile) transit service served by at least 30 transit vehicles per day

+ Goal 2: Provide a transportation system that enhances the health and safety of residents.

Evaluation Criteria

  • Provides a bicycle facility on an arterial or collector roadway
  • Provides a pedestrian facility on an arterial or collector roadway
  • Improves a recognized safety issue
  • Improves safety for vulnerable users

+ Goal 3: Provide a diversified and accessible transportation system that ensures mobility for all members of the community and provides viable alternatives to automobile travel.

Evaluation Criteria

  • Improves span and frequency of transit service by route classification
  • Improves percent of collectors and higher roadway mileage with transit service served by at least 30 transit vehicles per day
  • Reduces the bicycle level of traffic stress
  • Reduces the pedestrian level of traffic stress on arterial/ collector segments
  • Improves pedestrian network quality at arterial/collector intersections
  • Significantly improves percentage of households and employment near (within 1/4-mile) transit service served by at least 30 transit vehicles per day

+ Goal 4: Provide a sustainable transportation system through responsible stewardship of financial and environmental resources.

Evaluation Criteria

  • Focuses on travel demand management or existing transportation system management
  • Provides a bicycle facility on an arterial or collector roadway
  • Provides a pedestrian facility on an arterial or collector roadway
  • Improves safety for vulnerable users
  • Encourages increased travel by transit
  • Significantly reduces vehicle-miles traveled (VMT)

Provide Your Input

Proposed solutions have been rated as "High, Medium, or Low" priority based on the number of evaluation criteria met.

These initial ratings will be reviewed after consideration of public input through the Open House.

Auto and Freight Projects

The proposed auto and freight solutions/projects were evaluated to see how strongly each solution supports community-expressed interests. The solutions/projects have been rated as “High, Medium, or Low” priority based on the number of evaluation criteria met. These initial ratings will be reviewed after consideration of public input gathered at the open house and online open house.
