These options will be studied further and that information will be presented to Council before a decision is made.

The goal is to improve bicycle/pedestrian safety, increase ADA compliance, and encourage people to walk in the area. The next phase is a public input process. Then the citizen input and study information will be put into a final recommendation. We also will seek safety funds from ODOT for the final project.
