REDMOND, OR -- The city of Redmond and Oregon’s Department of Transportation host a joint meeting Wednesday afternoon to get input on two major initiatives. City Engineer Mike Caccavano local and state officials are working together on a major revision to Redmond's Transportation System Plan, "It’s been about 10 years since the last one. So far, we’ve been looking at what happens if we don’t do anything, as far as transportation improvements, over the next 30 years or so. And, 'what fails?' Not only vehicles in intersections and roadway sections, we’re also incorporating bikeway and pedestrian improvements in this, as well."

 

He’s also hoping for feedback on the South Highway 97 Corridor Improvement Project. "From Highland down to the southern city limits – how do we deal with that corridor? ODOT needs 

to do some pavement preservation in there. And, with a project like that, we start talking about sidewalks, business accesses; it needs some care."
 
Caccavano tells KBND News Wednesday's open house is just one of several opportunities for public input, "And there will be individual one-on-one meetings with business owners, stakeholders – particularly for the South Highway 97 Corridor. Whether you’re on that corridor, you’re anywhere in the city, whether you get around on bike or on foot, we want to get input on where we need to make improvements so we can make those decisions."

 

The Redmond/ODOT open house at City Hall takes place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
