ODOT wants ideas for Hwy 62, White City to Medford

Do you have a great solution for Oregon 62 (Crater Lake Highway) that can make the corridor more multimodal friendly? You and the general public are invited to share multimodal solutions, including transit, at two open houses scheduled for Wednesday, July 13.

ODOT will host the first open house at the Medford Library’s Carpenter Room, 205 South Central Avenue, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The second open house is at the White City Library, 3143 Avenue C, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

ODOT and members of a transit study subcommittee, part of the Citizens Advisory Committee for the Highway 62 Corridor Project, recognize how enhancing transit can reduce daily trips in this busy corridor.

“With a 2013 construction target looming, ODOT and other key transportation stakeholders are working together to develop a multimodal transportation solution that will reduce congestion and improve safety along Crater Lake Highway,” said ODOT Project Leader Dick Leever.

“There are opportunities to expand transit, bicycle and pedestrian facilities on Crater Lake Highway and major routes that cross the highway, like Vilas Road,” said Leever. “The project can support multimodal options through the corridor between White City and Medford.
We want to look at all feasible options that we can incorporate into the project.”

ODOT attempts to hold all public meetings in accessible buildings.
Accommodations will be provided to persons with disabilities. Alternate formats are available upon request. If a sign language interpreter is needed, please call Christie Meacham at 541-957-3698 at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.
