4 Oregon integrates planning Transportation Planning Rule (1991) Oregon Transportation Plan (1992) Oregon Highway Plan (1999) Local comprehensive plans/transportation system plans (TSPs)

5 What TSPs do: 20-year needs based on future land use plans Specify a network of planned improvements - mostly roads & streets Make the land use decision to allow a transportation facility or improvement in a general location

6 Transportation System Plans (TSPs) are based on land use plans adopted by cities and counties 80% + have adopted TSPs updated periodically

7 How a Project Gets Into the STIP

8 Projects come from… Project life cycle begins well before the STIP begins Many projects come from adopted transportation plans, especially modernization projects –Such as TSPs, RTPs, Facility Plans, etc. –Project purpose and need established in plans Projects also identified using management system data –Such as Safety, Preservation, Bridge

9 Area Commissions on Transportation Use plans to prioritize recommendations Coordinate regional priorities with adjacent Area Commissions, MPOs, and other stakeholder groups Follow policy adopted by the Oregon Transportation Commission in June 2003

10 Relationship to ODOT Advise on contents of Statewide Transportation Improvement Program Provide Forum for public input Review/approve state highway planning studies Advise ODOT on local initiatives that affect the state system ODOT provides commission staff support and technical support to answer questions raised by commission members

11 STIP Requirements Federal rules require each state to develop a STIP The STIP is a project programming and funding tool The STIP lists projects approved for funding and expected to be initiated for four years The STIP is fiscally constrained – projects match funding available

12 STIP Development Process Process Diagram

13 Oregon’s STIP ODOT updates the STIP every two years. Oregon has a section of the STIP for project studies and preparation (Development-STIP) Regions can choose to use some of their allocation for D-STIP projects Projects expected to go to construction within the four years are listed in the Construction STIP

14 Oregon’s STIP ODOT works with local governments and interest groups to develop the STIP through advisory committees such as: –Area Commissions on Transportation –MPO Policy Boards –County Coordinating Committees –Freight Advisory Committee –Public Transportation Advisory Committee

15 Project Eligibility The OTC has adopted Project Eligibility Criteria and Prioritization Factors for the three largest programs: Modernization, Preservation, and Bridge The criteria emphasize consistency with local plans and with Oregon Highway Plan policy The STIP criteria for are on the web at

16 Project Prioritization For Modernization, the ACTs, MPOs, and county committees prioritize projects using the OTC criteria and further criteria adopted by the ACT For other programs, Region staff prioritize the projects based on needs and management system data and often share the list with ACTs & MPOs

17 Completing the STIP process Region and state staff compile recommended STIP project lists using system data and agreed priorities ODOT staff must submit summary reports showing how projects meet OTC criteria where applicable OTC must approve final STIP, after public comment FHWA & FTA must approve ODOT’s STIP STIP often amended to update project information or timing Current STIP is 06-09, available at:

18 STIP Tools and Resources Information about the current STIP is available at Information about the STIP including approved criteria is available at The STIP Primer Brochure and the STIP Users’ Guide explain more about the process, available at
