108 ConnectOregon funding requests received

Twenty-four projects in Washington, Multnomah, Columbia and Clackamas counties are among the 108 projects requesting $45,338 through Oregon’s ConnectOregon program.

The Oregon Department of Transportation has received 108 applications requesting a total of $129,380,185 for the next round of ConnectOregon funding, according to Shelley Snow of the ODOT public affairs office.

The 2013 Oregon Legislature authorized $42 million in lottery-backed bonds for ConnectOregon V, a program that invests in multimodal transportation projects around the state.

Washington County project funding requests include $1.5 million for the Tigard Street Trail, a project of the City of Tigard; $1.98 million of the Tualatin River Greenway Trail Gap Completion, a project of the city; $750,000 for the Waterhouse Trail No. 34, a project of Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District; and $1.89 million for TriMet Westside Bike & Rides, a project of Tri-County Metroplitan Transportation.

Applications will be reviewed, with final decisions on approved projects expected by summer.
