Youth vs ODOT Rally Ride

Maritza Arango (Events Editor) by on September 15th, 2021 at 10:45 pm

“Youth activists have been staging rallies and protests at the ODOT building downtown for weeks. Let’s give them the support they deserve. Come support our Youth in their fight against ODOT’s status quo ways. Let’s help our future thrive by preventing freeway expansion and the continuation of car culture.

We will ride from Sunnyside School Park to the ODOT building (123 NW Flanders St) to show our support. Come one, come all. Tell your friends, families and neighbors. Let’s make our voices heard.

Enough is enough!

End location: The ride will end at the Youth vs ODOT rally to demand climate justice (123 NW Flanders St)”

ODOT Active Transportation Webinar

Maritza Arango (Events Editor) by on September 14th, 2021 at 7:00 pm

Now more than ever there is an increased emphasis on having a safe and equitable multimodal transportation system. Having more options to get where you need to go just makes sense in today’s environment, especially now that equity and climate issues are at the forefront.

Recently the Oregon Transportation Commission allocated additional funds to:

  • Address pedestrian and bicycle gaps on the state system.
  • Prioritize projects at locations that provide an equity and safety benefit.
  • Identify cost savings through leveraging with other ODOT projects.

To learn more, attend ODOT’s presentation at the League of Oregon Cities webinar at noon on Sept. 14. In this presentation, ODOT Rail and Public Transportation Division Administrator Karyn Criswell and Public Transportation Strategic Investment Manager Susan Peithman discuss how ODOT will address public and active transportation improvements in the upcoming 2024-2027 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program and our commitment to projects and programs that improve equitable access to walking, biking and transit.

Register for the webinar.

Oregon’s Highway 30 is an extremely important part of the cycling network, so we watch very closely for any opportunity to make it better.

You might recall last fall when we shared a hopeful story about how the stretch of what many locals call “Dirty 30” for its often debris-filled bike lanes could see cycling upgrades as part of a major Oregon Department of Transportation repaving project.

Now we’ve gotten our first-ever look at plans that confirm what the bike lanes will look like…
