(February 17, 2015) Everyone knows it - funding for transportation is tight. Yet there's plenty of need for improvement, especially to help people to get around on foot, by bike and by other healthy travel modes.
Less than half of ODOT's highways in urban areas currently have sidewalks and bike lanes. The Oregon Transportation Plan sets a goal of completing the state biking and walking network by 2030, but adequate funding is not available to meet this target. ODOT Region 1 is developing an Active Transportation Needs Inventory to assess gaps in the existing system and strategically identify future projects that provide the greatest benefits for all users. You can find out more about this project at the webpage. Or -
Come learn about this effort at the PBOT Bicycle Lunch and Learn on Thursday, Feb. 19 at noon. Jessica Horning, ODOT’s Region 1 Transit and Active Transportation Liaison, and Karla Kingsley of Kittelson & Associates will be there to describe the project and to hear your ideas.
And don’t forget to bring your lunch!
