Thank you to everyone who came out to the Lents Neighborhood on Sunday, August 6th 


We urge our members to write to Governor Brown TODAY to save the Capitol Hwy Project from a line-item veto.

We support this funding for sidewalk improvements on one of the most dangerous sections of Capitol Hwy (the intersection of Barbur Blvd and I5). This funding is the final piece needed for sidewalk completion and safety improvements on Capitol Hwy, a project that has been in the works for decades.  In fact, it has been a priority for neighbors since the year Oregon Walks was founded: 1991.

With many earmarked projects upheld in the transportation package that lack safety benefits for vulnerable road users or longstanding community support, we are confused and disheartened by Governor Brown's decision to veto this project in the final hour - after bipartisan support in legislature.

Please write to Governor Brown today to show your support for the dedication of $2 million toward sidewalk improvements on Capitol Highway!
