The Transportation Team works to provide an efficient multi-modal transportation system of roads, paths, sidewalks and other facilities for the benefit and use of auto, truck, bicycle, and bus users and pedestrians of all ages and abilities.
The team prepare comprehensive plans of area wide facilities, identify locations for new road, bike path and sidewalk facilities, respond to development proposals, prepare construction drawings for roads, multi-use paths, sidewalk projects and roundabouts, as well as manage the construction of those projects.
Traffic signals owned by the City and Oregon Department of Transportation are timed for safety and efficiency. Street lights are checked regularly for burned out bulbs. Citizen inquiries about new signs, signals, and lights, as well as speeding and safety concerns are investigated and cost effective solutions are implemented.
