Your responses to the following questions will help the Albany Area Metropolitan Planning Organization craft a transportation plan that is truly responsive to local needs.

The Albany Area Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) will guide transportation improvements over a 20-year period. The Plan will look at all the ways that people get around: in cars, with transit, or by walking or biking.  The RTP will consider what exists today, estimate demand, identify future options, and make recommendations for a balanced and efficient transportation system. Before taking the survey, you are welcome to read this Overview Handout, or read this recap:

The Project recommends implementing the Financially Constrained Plan, which includes a group of approximately 125 projects that have been developed to meet the growing transportation needs of the region through the year 2040. 

The Project Team evaluated two scenarios should additional funding become available:

1- Capacity Improvement Scenario: Includes a small (13) group of projects that would build a new bridge across the Willamette between Millersburg and Albany. This scenario is not proposed to advance because analysis showed insufficient benefit in travel times as compared to its cost.

2- Congestion Management Scenario: Includes a larger (39) group of projects that focuses on managing congestion and providing connections on existing corridors to better serve travelers. This scenario provides measurable benefit to the community.  

* 1. Please share your priorities.  Rank them here: 1 = Highest Priority, 5 = Least Priority

* 2. The project analysis shows that the Congestion Management Scenario (which includes 39 projects focused on managing congestion and providing connections to better serve travelers) provides more benefits than the Capacity Improvement Scenario (which includes 13 projects connected to building a bridge over the Willamette River between North Albany and Millersburg).

* 3. What geographic areas do you feel are most in need of improvements?  Based on the map below, please describe the specific areas in need of improvement. If you would like to comment on an online map, visit our Online Comment Map
