Grants for Bicycle/Pedestrian projects available
The Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee is now accepting applications for the 2010 – 2011 Oregon Pedestrian and Bicycle Program grant program, administered by the Oregon Department of Transportation. Approximately $5 million will be distributed through a competitive application process. All elements of proposed projects must be within a street right of way. More information, project requirements and applications are available online. Paper copies of the application are available by calling Jaime at (503) 986-3871. Applications must be postmarked by July 25, 2008.
Examples of eligible projects include sidewalk infill, pedestrian crossings, intersection improvements, streetscapes, bike boulevards, and minor roadway widening for bikeways. It is recommended that proposed projects include landscaping, lighting, bicycle parking and other features that enhance the walking and bicycling environment. Projects that include automobile capacity improvements are not eligible.
Projects on state highways must be pre-approved by the ODOT District Manager before submission. Those applications should be presented to the local ODOT District Office by June 27, 2008 to give staff time to review or suggest modifications. For questions about a project’s eligibility, call ODOT’s Bicycle/Pedestrian Program office at (503) 986-3555 or (503) 984-3554.
