Transportation System Plan
What is a Transportation System Plan (TSP)?
The Transportation System Plan (TSP for short) will guide how the transportation system changes in Grants Pass over the next 20 years. It helps decide which new transportation projects will be most likely to get funding, so it's important for the TSP to reflect the needs of residents and businesses. We need to hear your thoughts as the plan takes shape. Our city has two Interstate 5 interchanges so the project will also includes two Interchange Area Management Plans (IAMPs).
How do you get around in Grants Pass?
The City of Grants Pass needs your help updating our Transportation System Plan. The plan will help us think about how we get around town today, what changes are coming over the next 20 years, and what we need to do to keep Grants Pass a great place to live.
Decisions today will impact the future
There are currently 143 miles of city streets in the Grants Pass transportation system, as well as over 190 miles of sidewalks and trails. All of this infrastructure requires money to maintain, so we have to choose new investments carefully.
There are no currently planned meetings.
Information will be posted soon.
Get involved -
Online Open House: We need your help! The City of Grants Pass is looking for feedback and comments on our new Transportation System Plan. We use our roads and bridges everyday as we move throughout our City and are planning for the future. How do you travel through town? What areas are the most difficult? The project team will build out the plan with policies, ordinances, and a list of possible projects that would get priority for funding based on your comments. This online open house will be your chance to see and comment on these ideas before they are approved by the City Council.
Your insight is valuable and we appreciate any feedback you can give us!
Online from Sept 9- October 31 for public input.
