City of Springfield Transportation Planners analyze
the transportation system and facilitate project planning and funding for
long-term needs for all modes of transportation including bicycles, pedestrians,
autos, freight, and transit. Planners work with partner agencies such as LTD,
LCOG, Lane County and ODOT through the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO)
to program and prioritize funding for transportation projects and programs. They
also work extensively with the public, elected and appointed officials to
develop goals and policies to address transportation system needs.
TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROJECTS
The City of Springfield is
conducting a planning process to look at how the transportation system is
currently used and how it should change to meet the long-term (20-year) needs of
Springfield’s residents, businesses, and visitors. Through coordination with
community members and affected public agencies, the City of Springfield will
develop a plan for improvements of all modes of transportation in Springfield,
including the roadway, bicycle and pedestrian, transit, and rail networks. The
Plan will also include a transportation improvement and financing plan.
This project will result in a Transportation System Plan (TSP) for
Springfield and an update to Springfield’s portion of the Regional
Transportation System Plan (RTSP) being prepared by the Lane Council of
The TSP is being prepared in coordination with the Oregon
Department of Transportation, Lane Council of
Governments, and the Oregon Department of
Land Conservation and Development. This project will also closely
consider local, regional and state policies, plans, and rules, including the
Oregon Highway Plan and the region’s transportation system plan.

Boulevard Redevelopment Project
The Franklin Boulevard Project is a
project planned for Glenwood that will construct modern urban standard
improvements on the old Hwy 99 alignment in
called Franklin Boulevard between downtown Springfield, the University of
Oregon and downtown Eugene. The
existing Franklin corridor (a.k.a. OR 126B, McKenzie Highway), lacks
bicycles and pedestrians, and is the only segment of Lane Transit District’s popular bus rapid transit EmX
“Green Line”, that operates in mixed traffic with temporary curb side stations.
