Staff is recommending an additional set of changes to update the Major Thoroughfare Plan with changes that have been made to an existing roadway:
- 1. Realignment of Central Street to Pythian Street Central has been vacated and is now a part of the OTC campus. Pythian has now been extended to recreate an east-west connection. This update corresponds to the Functional Classification Request that was approved by the Board of Directors at their June 2019 meeting.
As part of the FAST Act Performance Measures requirements, OTO must continue to update its planning documents to align with the implementation rules of the Performance Measure Requirements. These Major Thoroughfare Plan changes are considered an update to the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), Transportation Plan 2040, and so the LRTP System Performance Report must be updated to include the Targets that have been adopted to date.
Transportation Plan 2040 is the long range transportation plan for the region and proposes a list of projects which can be afforded through 2040. Projects moved to construction in the Transportation Improvement Program must first appear in Transportation Plan 2040.
