Come join us at Open House #2 to learn about the draft transportation projects being proposed to address needs in your community! The event is on Tuesday, September 20 at the Winston Community Center from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. If you can't attend in person, check out the ONLINE SURVEY that presents the same information and provide your input that way!
What is a TSP?
A Transportation System Plan is a long-range planning document for Winston, shaped by community input and adopted into the Comprehensive Plan, that describes the city's transportation system and details projects, programs, and policies to meet transportation needs now and in the future. This long-range planning document helps the City improve and expand its transportation system to support existing users and future growth.
What will the TSP accomplish?
This project will:
- Identify goals, policies, and strategies to facilitate a safe, efficient, well-connected multimodal transportation network in the City of Winston.
- Increase connectivity and safety of bicycle and pedestrian networks to community destinations.
- Prioritize a list of transportation improvements that reflect the conditions and resources available.
- Align with other planning efforts happening in Winston.
- Incorporate public participation to serve the needs of residents and businesses for the next 20 years.
Your perspectives and input are an important element of this update.
Does Winston currently have a TSP?
The current City of Winston TSP was adopted in 2003. Since that time, there has been a growing need to:
- Serve the increase in vehicular travel between Winston and Roseburg;
- Safely facilitate freight movement that supports economic activity in the region;
- Improve multimodal safety and connections among the City's community destinations;
- Improve transportation services for disadvantaged populations; and
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve resiliency in the City's transportation system.
Changes in state, regional, and local plans and regulations have also occurred. This project will update the current TSP to reflect the changes that have occurred since 2003 and anticipate the changes that will take place over the next 20 years.
