Washington County Transportation System Plan update open houses in January

For Immediate Release Thursday, December 26, 2013

Sponsored by: Department of Land Use & Transportation

Washington County is studying today's transportation system to identify potential changes to better meet the future needs of county residents, businesses and visitors. Transportation planners are about halfway through the process of updating Washington County's Transportation System Plan (TSP), which looks ahead to the year 2035.

In October 2013, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the plan's goals and policies, culminating over a year's worth of work and collaboration with members of the public, the TSP Community Advisory Committee (CAC) and Interagency Coordinating Committee (ICC), the county's Planning Commission and the Board of County Commissioners. We are now moving into the second phase of this project, which includes map updates for roads, transit, freight, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
