The Oregon Department of Transportation has announced that they are now accepting applications for their Pedestrian and Bicycle Program grant program. Projects from all over Oregon are eligible to compete for $5 million.
Since 1986, the program has awarded millions of dollars to hundreds of bike and ped projects throughout the state. The program is administered by the Oregon Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee, who will make decisions on which projects to fund in October 2008. Grant applications are due by July 25.
ODOT says the projects they’ll fund include, “sidewalk infill, pedestrian crossings, intersection improvements, streetscapes, bike boulevards, and minor roadway widening for bikeways.”
For more information, see the program website and contact Sheila Lyons, ODOT’s bicycle and pedestrian coordinator at (503) 986-3555.
