Springfield Infrastructure Agreement 1998
Main Street Projects Springfield`s main street is regularly classified as one of the dangerous streets of the Oregon city due to the severity and frequency of traffic accidents. The City of Springfield and the Oregon Department of Transportation created the Main Street Safety Project to address this safety issue by engaging our Springfield community and conducting in-depth analysis to identify thoughtful and effective safety solutions. Our goal is to create a coordinated plan that identifies the types of safety improvements that work best for all users of Main Street. Community engagement is essential to inform the choice of infrastructure solutions that help ensure safe and accessible transportation for all, whether on foot, by bike, mobility device, bus or car.

Bicycle Plan – Adopted in 1998 The Springfield Bicycle Plan updated the 1982 Springfield Bike Path Plan and provided details on the bicycle component of the 1986 Eugene-Springfield Metropolitan Area Transportation Plan. About 20 years ago, the plan aimed to create a safe, comfortable and attractive cycling system that, as an integral part of the city`s overall transportation system, promotes the quality of life and prosperity of the community. Transportation System Plan – Adopted in 2014, updated in 2020 The City of Springfield adopted the Springfield Transportation Plan (TSP) in March 2014 (Order 6314). The city updated the plan in 2020 as part of the TSP implementation project (Ordinance 6413).
The 20-year plan examines how the transportation system is currently being used and identifies the vision for the community`s multimodal transportation system to meet the needs of residents, businesses and visitors in the future. Rainwater Management Plan The Rainwater Management Plan is designed to provide guidance on activities that impact rainwater throughout the city and its urbanized area. It is intended to help meet state and federal water quality requirements and achieve local water resource management goals. It characterizes Springfield`s stormwater drainage system, sets goals, policies and implementation measures, and creates a way to adaptively measure, report, and manage the city`s water resources and rainwater runoff. The following projects are important high-priority investment projects currently underway. Each project page contains the contact information for the project manager. Maximum Total Daily Load The City of Springfield is implementing several special programs to improve water quality in the Willamette and McKenzie Rivers. See our Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL IP) Implementation Plan and related annual report. Visit the Regional Transportation Planning website to learn more about the efforts of other cities in our metropolitan area. Phase II PERMIT MS4 NPDES Runoff from polluted rainwater is usually transported through separate municipal rainwater channels (MS4), from which it is often discharged untreated into local waters. To prevent pollutants from being washed or disposed of in an MS4, operators must obtain a permit from the National Pollutant Release Disposal System (NPDES) and develop a rainwater management program.
Springfield, like many small and medium-sized cities across the country, falls under the requirements of the Federal Clean Water Act (CWA) to apply for and maintain a Phase II MS4 permit under the NPDES program. See the NPDES Annual Report. Rainwater System Master Plan The objective of the Rainwater System Master Plan is to provide guidance for planning for more comprehensive, efficient and targeted management of the city`s rainwater system. The plan was last updated in 2008. Wastewater Master Plan The City of Springfield provides wastewater collection and extraction services using a system of pipelines and pumping stations. Along with the city of Eugene, Springfield flows into the Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission`s regional wastewater treatment plant. The Wastewater Master Plan provides an assessment of current and future needs for the city`s collection system. The plan was last updated in 2008. . Sewer Assessment The 2002 Sewer Assessment reports on the condition of the City of Springfield`s open-channel rainwater drainage system. The report`s data categorizes, describes, and summarizes the physical properties of various systems throughout the city in terms of sewer configuration, adjacent land uses, and specific water quality parameters. The corridor will provide an east-west cycling network option that will serve as an alternative to Main Street.
In addition, the project aims to improve the overall attractiveness of the corridor for all users and residents, improve pedestrian safety and use and ensure traffic calming to focus on safety and active transportation along the road.

Franklin Boulevard Redevelopment Project From Springfield, the Franklin Boulevard Redevelopment Project in Springfield is a project planned for Glenwood that will make modern improvements to urban standards on the former route of Highway 99 Franklin Boulevard. The entire length of Franklin Boulevard connects downtown Springfield and Eugene to the University of Oregon in between. Construction at Glenwood will increase safety and mobility for all modes of transportation by improving lane configuration, rebuilding intersection controls, physically separating facilities for cyclists and pedestrians, installing landscaping and rainwater treatments, and adding new street lights. . Springfield`s “7 Key Stormwater Outcomes” In 1999, Springfield City Council adopted the 7 Key Stormwater Outcomes as a guide for stormwater management in the city. The guidelines provide specific guidance that is consistent with local objectives and state and federal requirements, and support the implementation of the subway plan and guidelines for the public facilities and services plan. .
