Transportation System Master Plan (TSMP)

*Draft Transportation System Master Plan is ready for Public Comment*

The City of Pasco is conducting its first Transportation System Master Plan (TSMP). The TSMP is a guide for future transportation investments to ensure that they align with the community’s goals, values, and vision for the future.

Transportation planning in Washington is required under the Growth Management Act (RCW 36.70A.108) which governs each city’s transportation element of a comprehensive plan. This TSMP will act as a supplement to the transportation element in Pasco’s ongoing comprehensive planning efforts.

The following items will be addressed:

  • A set of goals, policies, and evaluation criteria that define a vision for a city’s transportation future
  • An inventory of a city’s existing, multimodal transportation system and how well these systems currently serve users
  • An assessment of future travel demand and the impact of this growth on the existing transportation system
  • A review of bicycle and pedestrian needs and opportunities
  • An understanding of available funding for transportation system improvements

The Plan Process:
