The project supports ODOT's OR 217 Auxiliary Lane project, which will improve safety and reduce bottlenecks on OR 217 by adding auxiliary lanes, or ramp to ramp connections, between Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and OR 99W. To fulfill it's obligations under ORS 366.514, ODOT desires to construct certain improvements to connect to the Fanno Creek Regional Trail. ORS 366.514 is colloquially known as the "Pedestrian and Bicycle Bill." The Pedestrian and Bicycle Bill was enacted in 1971 to ensure Oregon roadways provide facilities that allow for safe travel by people walking and biking. The law establishes when pedestrian and bicycle facilities must be provided as part of transportation projects. The law applies to all transportation projects in the state, regardless of who owns the facility, project funding source, or amount.
