  • Safe Passage for Bikes

    Safe Passing Basics:

            • Slow Down and pass on the left.
            • Leave enough space to avoid contact with the rider.
            • Always lean on the side of caution.

  • 2016 Oregon Chip Seal Projects
    The Oregon Department of Transportation uses “chip seals” to improve roads quickly and cost-effectively. While this resurfacing method has many benefits, it can create an unpleasant bicycle ride. Loose rock on the roadway surface can get thrown around by fast-moving traffic.
    In an effort to alert bicyclists about this summer’s chip seal projects, we’ve created a schedule and posted their locations. These projects, as well as other highway projects, are listed on the 2016 Summer Construction map, which is also available in ODOT District offices and DMV field offices.
