Help Make Oregon a Safer and Better Place to Bike
New Smartphone App
TTP Lab has developed a smartphone app to collect route, infrastructure, crash, and safety data for the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). Data provided by the ORcycle app users will be utilized to produce maps displaying all reported locations with crashes, safety or infrastructure issues/problems. State, county, and city staff as well as app users will be able to access maps with crash and safety data gathered by ORcycle.
Willamette Water Supply Program
The Willamette Water Supply Program is planning to develop an additional source of water from the mid-Willamette River at Wilsonville. This project will expand the Willamette River Water Treatment Plant and add pipelines and storage to serve communities in Washington County. Several pipeline route alternatives are being considered. Construction in most areas will not begin for several years.
