Project Completed October 2013
The City of Bend, with the help of a consultant team and input from a wide range of stakeholders, is updating the multimodal aspects of the corridor through the addition of curb extensions, improved lighting, buffered bike facilities, and shared arrow lane markings.
The City also intends to reconfigure the Riverside Boulevard/Tumalo Road intersection to better provide for the primary movements through the intersection.
The City of Bend was awarded a grant by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to help fund the Riverside/Franklin Pedestrian and Bicycling Infrastructure Project. The purpose of the ODOT grant was to fund showcase projects that will advance state-of-the-art multimodal transportation safety and increase the percentage of people walking and biking within the corridor. The Riverside/Franklin corridor was chosen because of its location in the community, its use of buffered bike lanes, and its intent to seemlessly integrate multimodal facilities.
