Transportation Commission approves $23.7 million for non-highway projects
03/22/2012
The Oregon Transportation Commission has approved providing $23.7 million to a list of non-highway projects through the Flexible Funds Program. The projects range from improving bus stops in Salem to restoring the Ochoco Creek Bicycle/Pedestrian Trail in Prineville. Projects were reviewed and recommended after a months-long process by stakeholders representing various modes and geographic regions around the state.
 
The approved list (see below) includes 25 projects and 10 alternatives, all of which must address the needs of bicycle/pedestrian, transit and/or transportation demand (congestion-reducing efforts, such as ride-sharing) projects, programs, plans or services. Funding comes from the Federal Highway Administration Surface Transportation Program budget (STP) and does not affect the current funding levels of other programs that use flexible STP funds. Overall, the program received 105 applications requesting more than $89 million.
 
The Oregon Transportation Commission created the new program in 2010 to strategically focus investment in specific non-highway transportation projects. To learn more about the program, visit the Flexible Funds Program’s website.
