The Oregon Department of Transportation wants public feedback on proposed solutions to congestion and safety problems on the U.S. 97 Parkway.
Among the improvements that planners are considering are new auxiliary lanes, interchanges and overcrossings. Corridor-wide changes could include modifying or closing problematic intersections, removing or making changes to signals, and providing separated bike and pedestrian crossings. Ramp meters, improved signage, and wider shoulders are also being considered.
Give feedback online through December 15
The solutions are part of the final phase of the U.S. 97 Parkway Plan, which will identify cost-effective, achievable improvements for motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and others who use the Parkway.
