At the February 17, 2022 BPAC meeting, OakDOT Transportation Planner Charlie Ream presented on the 14th Street Safety Project. The project is proceeding toward 100% design in early 2022, with construction potentially beginning in early 2023. This roadway safety project will install protected bike lanes on 14th Street from Brush Street to Oak Street, take 14th Street from 4 to 2 vehicle lanes, shorten pedestrian crossings, and install new landscaping and sidewalk lighting. OakDOT is scheduled to bring the project to the Public Works Committee on 3/22/22 (date tentative).
The 65% design plans were previously reviewed and discussed at the Jan. 27, 2022 BPAC Infrastructure Committee meeting.
