Transportation System Plan (TSP)
The City of Springfield completed and adopted the Springfield Transporation System Plan (TSP) in July 2014. The plan assesses the community’s transportation needs and identifies the preferred multi-modal transporation system to serve residents, businesses and visitors. Visit the City’s Transportation System Planning page to learm more about the Transportation System Plan process.
In order to implement the goals, policies, and actions identified in the plan, the City is currently conducting a code update and implementation project to establish the Transportation System Plan’s vision in the Springfield Development Code. Please visit the Transportation System Plan page to learn more about the current efforts.

Virginia-Daisy Bikeway Project
The Virginia-Daisy Bikeway Project will include design development that considers, but is not limited to, treatments such as striping of bicycle lanes, sharrows, traffic calming infrastructure, intersection treatments, automobile traffic diversion, limited lighting additions, ramp improvements, speed and designation signs, and a crossing improvement at 42nd St.
The corridor will provide an east-west bike network option, that will serve as an alternative to Main Street. Additionally, the project strives to enhance the overall appeal of the corridor for all users and residents, improve pedestrian safety and usage, and provide traffic calming to emphasize safety and active transportation along the street.

Franklin Boulevard Redevelopment Project
The Franklin Boulevard Redevelopment Project is a project planned for Glenwood that will construct modern urban standard improvements on the old Highway 99 alignment, called Franklin Boulevard, between downtown Springfield, the University of Oregon, and downtown Eugene.
Main Street Safety Project
Springfield’s Main Street is consistently ranked as one of the most unsafe city streets in Oregon based on the severity and frequency of traffic crashes. The City of Springfield and the Oregon Department of Transportation have launched the Main Street Safety Project to address this safety problem. Over the next two years, we will engage our Springfield community and do detailed analysis to identify thoughtful and effective safety solutions. Our goal is to create a coordinated plan that identifies the types of safety improvements that work best for all Main Street users. Community engagement is vital to inform the selection of infrastructure solutions that help ensure safe, accessible transportation for everyone, whether by foot, bike, mobility device, bus, or car.
