Bend and Sisters will benefit from a portion of the $5.3-million in state money for bicycle and pedestrian improvements across the State.   Oregon Department of Transportation’s Sheila Lyons says the number of applications tied a previous record. “Represents about almost a seven or eight to one ratio between the money asked for and the money available, and the applicants versus the number that got awarded. That is up from about a five to one ratio in prior years.” Lyons says it appears cities and counties are responding to increase requests from residents for improved bike and pedestrian access.   The City of Bend will get $649,000 for cross improvements and bike lanes. Sisters will receive more than $1.3-million for phase one of an overall project to enhance the bicycle and pedestrian experience.
