Strategy 2.1B
Goal 2: Accessibility and Connectivity: Provide a complete bicycling and pedestrian network that reliably and easily connects to destinations and other transportation modes.
Policy 2.1: Improve pedestrian and bicycle network connectivity through the provision of planning guidance, model programs, development code, and other technical assistance.
Strategy 2.1B: When local planning processes have, in consultation with ODOT, identified a local parallel bike route, and a bikeway on the state highway is determined to be contrary to public safety, is disproportionate in cost to the project cost or need, or is not needed as shown by relevant factors and therefore justified to be exempt from ORS 366.514 based on one of those statutory exemptions, ODOT will work with the jurisdictions to support the development of the parallel route and assure reasonable access to destinations along the state highway. ODOT and the local jurisdiction may enter into an agreement in which ODOT helps to fund, in negotiation and partnership with the local jurisdiction, construction of the bikeway in the vicinity of the state highway project that serves as an alternative or parallel route to the highway project.

Strategy 2.5D
Goal 2: Accessibility and Connectivity: Provide a complete bicycling and pedestrian network that reliably and easily connects to destinations and other transportation modes.
Policy 2.5: Support off roadway walkways and bikeways that help to connect communities, provide alternatives to motorized travel, or promote and support walking and biking tourism.
Strategy 2.5D: Regional Paths: Identify off roadway walkways and bikeways in state facility plans, Regional transportation Plans, or Transportation System Plans for future development, justifing need according to prioritization categories listed in Strategy 8.2A of this Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.

In addition to the definition of "high need locations" specified in Policy 8.2A, off-roadway walkways and bikeways that meet all of the following criteria shall be considered Regional Paths that demonstrate a statewide benefit and shall be prioritized as a "critical connections."
  • Is a continuous path made up of one or more connected segments that is primarily physically separated from the roadway;
  • Connects two or more incorporated communities, with each community no more than 15 miles apart; or traverses through a single large community with a path that is 10 miles or longer;
  • Will serve as a connection point for people commuting between communities; or is part of officially designated walking and bicycling route, such as Scenic Bikeways, Bike Route, or US National Bike Route; and
  • Is endorsed by elected bodies along path alignment.

Strategy 8.1B
Goal 8: Strategic Investment: Recognize Oregon's strategic investments in walking and biking as crucial components of the transportation system that provide essential options for travel, and can help reduce system costs, and achieve other important benefits.
Policy 8.1: Seek funding to address pedestrian and bicycle transportation needs.
Strategy 8.1B: Promote and encourage state and local jurisdictions to seek opportunities to leverage investments made for other projects (such as sewer or utility work) to address outstanding pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure needs.

Strategy 8.2A
Goal 8: Strategic Investment: Recognize Oregon's strategic investments in walking and biking as crucial components of the transportation system that provide essential options for travel, and can help reduce system costs, and achieve other important benefits.
Policy 8.2: Invest strategically in the overall pedestrian and bicycle system (state and local) by preserving existing infrastructure, addressing high need locations, and supporting programmatic investments.
Strategy 8.2A: Use the following priorities for planning, identifying and investing in pedestrian and bicycle projects. The prioritization categories should be applied flexibly so that a jurisdiction, region, or ODOT may elevate a project in a lower priority category as one of their top priorities. Recognize that projects identified and funding allocated should be distributed among these categories in "high need locations" (i.e. transportation disadvantaged areas and surrounding schools, shopping, employment centers, medical services, connections to transit, and downtowns) first.

  • Protect the existing system and address significant safety issues - Protect the functionality of the existing pedestrian and bicycle system through safety, connectivity, maintenance, and preservation.
  • Add critical connections and address other safety issues - Make improvements to the existing system by providing pedestrian and bicycle connections in areas where no connections exist, such as new regional paths, or where transportation options are limited, particularly in high need locations; and to address significant safety concerns.
  • Complete the system - Provide a complete system to enhance people's ability to walk or bike, such as through increased safety and security measures (e.g. separation, pedestrian bulb outs) and availability (e.g. bikeshare, bicycle parking).
  • Elaborate the system - Elaborate the system through increased network connectivity, such as areas not deemed as critical connections or more recreation based uses; as well as more costly user comfort features.
