Modern Transportation System Priority

biccycle commuterA modern transportation system ensures all Oregonians can travel safely and efficiently. Focusing on preserving state highways, while important, is not enough. In order to meet the needs of the future, we must be relentlessly committed to creating a truly multimodal transportation system where we invest in and integrate all major modes of transportation. 

We will focus not only on improving safety and preserving the existing system, but on improving mobility for all users, addressing climate change, investing in innovative technologies, and implementing a comprehensive congestion management plan to keep Oregonians and our economy moving.
