On the Road Again: Lincoln City Transportation System Plan Public Event #1, Thursday, June 27th.
Lincoln City, Oregon – Lincoln City’s transportation system plan (TSP) update hits the road with a public event on Thursday, June 27th from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 pm at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 540 NE Highway 101. Come any time during the event to share your thoughts with city officials, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and our consultants on what is good and bad about getting around in the city.
You’ll see some forecasts of what transportation conditions will be like in 2035, if no investments are made, and offer suggestions for what to do about it. Widen streets or give the highway a road diet? Expand transit by adding a trolley bus? Encourage tourists to stagger arrivals and departures? Implement the Walking and Biking Plan? The city’s updated transportation system plan will guide improvements for driving, walking, biking, transit, and other transportation modes over the next 20 years.
The project’s consultants will share best practices and ideas for dealing with transportation safety, capacity, mobility, and accessibility in other tourist towns. Interactive stations will involve residents in drawing, writing, and talking about transportation. Residents will have the opportunity to experience challenges faced by the blind in a walk with project advisory committee member Steve Lewis, who will lead tours at 4:30 and 5:30. We’ll have displays, a Powerpoint, activities for children (under parent/guardian supervision), refreshments, and a few give-aways.
The City of Lincoln City thanks ODOT for providing funds to engage DKS Associates consulting firm and for its support in preparing our TSP update. To learn more about the project and tell us what you think, please visit the project’s website by clicking here.
