2020-2029 Bicycle & Pedestrian Capital Improvement Program

The City of Hillsboro is in the process of updating the Transportation System Plan (TSP).

The updated TSP will include BPCIP project selection guidance based on input from the community. When the TSP is completed, it will be used to develop the 2020-2029 BPCIP project list which will then be presented to Transportation Committee for adoption (see diagram below). 

Transportation System Plan (TSP)

  • Guides long-term transportation decision making
  • Identifies transportation projects that will support expected growth
  • Identifies gaps in the transportation network

Bicycle & Pedestrian Capital Improvement Program

The BPCIP currently has an annual budget of approximately $1.5 million. A portion of these funds comes from the residential Transportation Utility Fee (TUF) while the other portion comes from the Gain Share Fund. The TUF is collected through the City’s utility bill.
