The City of Vancouver is working to make a safe east-west route on McLoughlin Blvd between Reserve and Brandt that accommodates all levels of cyclists including children. The proposal includes improving pedestrian crosswalks at intersections and creating buffered bike lanes. This project will foster overall system connectivity, and address a major gap in the City's Complete Streets Network.

Last night the Salem City Council approved the Winter-Maple Neighborhood Greenway - the first family-friendly bikeway in the City of Salem! The 2.5-mile route passes near and directly by several schools where, currently, students do not have access to safe routes to walk, bike or roll to school. The Winter-Maple Neighborhood Greenway will transform the area and provide these new opportunities to students and people of all ages. Together with the Director of the Oregon School for the Deaf (OSD) and OSD students, we were successful in advocating for the inclusion of both speed humps and a reduced speed limit to 20 mph near the OSD Campus, which was not included in previous drafts of the plan.
