Transportation Plan 2040 Amendment 11 Packet

Amendment 11 – Changes to Financial Projections and Constrained Project List

The public is invited to comment on changes to Transportation Plan 2040, which is the OTO long range transportation plan through the year 2040. Projects moved to construction in the Transportation Improvement Program must first appear in Transportation Plan 2040. Details can be found at http://giveusyourinput.org

The City of Springfield has been awarded a BUILD grant in the amount of $20,960,822 federal funds for the Grant Avenue Connect Parkway Project. The project will reconstruct approximately 3.3 miles of a multi-use bicycle and pedestrian path on Grant Avenue starting in Downtown Springfield, ending at Sunshine Street, including advisory bike lanes, a roundabout, two raised intersections, three protected intersections, a grade-separated crossing at Fassnight Creek, bridge enhancement, utility upgrades, fiber connectivity, additional crossing and signal timing improvements, outdoor incubator, and creek daylighting.

All projects programmed in the Transportation Improvement Program must appear in the long range transportation plan, Transportation Plan 2040. The Financial Capacity Chapter has been updated to reflect this additional funding and the Range of Alternatives Chapter has been updated to reflect this project specifically, as well as to show continued fiscal constraint.
