Should Highway 101 be modified through Depoe Bay?
An effort to update portions of the Transportation System Plan (TSP) for the City of Depoe Bay will take an important first step forward next week as a work session is held with the combined Depoe Bay City Council and Planning Commission, with a contractor for ODOT leading the discussion.
On Tuesday, January 15, the work session will be held between 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Depoe Bay City Council Chambers located at 570 SE Shell Avenue. The public is encouraged to attend.
The issues include:
* Consideration of a 3-lane versus a 4-lane cross section of US 101 downtown.
* Access, parking and pedestrian facilities on the east side of US 101, south of the bridge.
* Future roadway connections to potential growth areas east of US 101 between Lillian Lane and Collins Street.
The Tuesday work session will provide an overview of the first phase of the TSP Supplemental Analysis, and will include a discussion of draft project goals, objectives and evaluation criteria and transportation financing options.
