Transportation System Plan Update

About the Update

The Planning Department is currently updating the City of Hillsboro's Transportation System Plan (TSP), the blueprint for the City’s transportation investments over the next 20 years. The TSP helps guide transportation-related decision making to serve Hillsboro’s diverse users within the context of Hillsboro’s vision for the future. The State of Oregon requires every local jurisdiction to create a Transportation System Plan to help guide transportation infrastructure planning and investments. The TSP includes a list of transportation infrastructure projects to assist in planning ahead for projected growth, identifying service gaps, and meeting future needs.

The TSP is updated periodically to adjust for the City’s growth and to stay compliant with the latest State and regional regulations.  Hillsboro's TSP must be coordinated with Washington County's TSP (2014) and consistent with Metro's Regional Transportation Plan (2018).  The City of Hillsboro last updated its TSP in 2004, while portions of the document date back to 1999.  Since 2004, the City has conducted about a dozen periodic amendments to reflect rapid growth and community change.  For instance, in 2012 and 2013, the TSP was amended to incorporate planning for the North Hillsboro, Amberglen and South Hillsboro areas.

The current TSP update will be a comprehensive revision of the entire document. With the recent adoption of the City of Hillsboro’s Comprehensive Plan update, now is an excellent time to strategically update the TSP to accurately reflect new transportation goals and policies, as well as community priorities. City staff will examine the needs and deficiencies of the current system, identify solutions to existing issues, and evaluate alternative actions to develop a fiscally attainable transportation plan. The update is underway and is expected to last through summer 2020.
