"The State of Oregon has finalized its first batch of Safe Routes to School projects funded through the $5.3 billion transportation package passed by legislators in 2017," reports Jonathan Maus.
The Oregon Department of Transportation awarded nearly $16 million for 24 projects for the entire state, including $3.39 million for the region including Portland. "Demand for these funds far outstripped supply as the agency received a total of 112 project applications requesting a total of $85 million," according to Maus.
The grant funding awarded for the next round, scheduled for 2021, will increase to $30 million.
