Program Background

The Oregon Transportation Commission approved $55 million for strategic pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure improvements on ODOT roads in the 2024-2027 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). These funds will be allocated through a new program, the Pedestrian and Bicycle Strategic Funding Program as part of a $255 million investment in the Public and Active Transportation Program. Program overview can be found here.

Program Goals

  1. Address pedestrian and bicycle gaps on the state system such as missing sidewalks, bike lanes and crossings.
  2. Prioritize projects at locations that provide an equity and safety benefit.
  3. Identify cost savings through leveraging with other ODOT projects such as repaving or curb ramp replacement at high priority pedestrian or bicycle locations.

The increased funding for pedestrian and bicycle projects in the ’24-’27 STIP is intended to improve progress on key performance measures by funding the necessary improvements on or along state highways, with a focus on priority locations identified through the Active Transportation Needs Inventory (ATNI). This new program supports improving safe and equitable access to active and public transportation, a key initiative of the Strategic Action Plan

Funds may be used for a variety of improvements that benefit walking and biking safety and access, however our priority is to improve sidewalks, bike lanes and crossings that will complete the state network and implement frequent pedestrian crossings as guided by the Blueprint for Urban Design.
